I don’t recall the exact measurements for the “hole”, but it’s probably 3-4” wider than your standard twin mattress. This gives some room for blankets to be tucked in. Length probably has a similar margin to it as well.

Just as an update, I finished the second bed about a year ago and have recently bunked them. It bunked with no problems, something I was nervous about since I built them about a year apart.

Have your say...
