This is the finished product of the single beds built for the Chi Omega dorm rooms. Ten of these were built. They were completed in June 2009.

They feature a large head board designed with bookcases at the top and small cell phone shelf, which most students use as an alarm clock. Below the small shelf is a hole for the charging cord.

For storage the bed has 4 extra deep drawers with full extension rails. This gives over 5 ½ cubic feet of drawer space. Add the false panel on the other side with the doors and you have over 22 cubic feet of space.

Product dimensions:
Overall 79 ¾”h x 40 ½”w x 76 ½”d
Drawer Pedestal Height 23”
Usable drawer box space 7 ½”h x 27”w x 16”d (each)
False panel useable space 23”h x 19 ½”w x 64”d
Door opening 19”h x 15 ½”w
