This is the second style of bunk beds built for the Chi Omega House in Fayetteville, AR. This is the last of the project of 7 bunk beds and 10 single beds.

Here are the other two write ups:

These are similar to the first bunk beds but they have a bookcase design. The reason the others didn’t have a bookcase is because we needed as much space at the foot as possible. This style took up eight more inches of space. Everything was the same. I even made the side rail positions standard so that the footboards could be interchanged.

Here are some raw video of the build:
