This is a Custom Loft Bed that we just finished in September 2017. We like to call this the “Baseball Loft Style 1”. I’ve built two different styles that are slightly different. This style 1 has a ladder to get up to the top and Style 2 will have a staircase leading up there.
See Style 1
See Style 2

The top is a twin size bed (39” x 75”) while the bottom is the wider full size (54” x 75”). We inlayed an authentic Louisville Slugger bat in the foot-board of that lower bed and also we added a Yankee logo. We used baseballs for the post-caps. We continue the bat theme on the top bunk and used the authentic Louisville Slugger bats as the guard rails. I cut some Ash supports to go on the ends and center of the bats and use double sided lag screws to connect the center and then a flat head lag bolt on the ends.

We also finished the bed in the Yankee colors: the Yankee blue, Yankee red and the white. Don’t know if any of you use the pigmented lacquer instead of oil or latex paint, but it dries really fast and is durable.

We added lockers to the left side. Those lockers were numbered and vents added. We also purchased some logos to put on the doors.

Some additional features that we sometimes add to these is we will add a name plate to the lockers we’ll also add a scoreboard head-board. The score layout can be exactly how the customers want it.

Inside the lockers, there are adjustable shelves with a hole cut out in the back, so you have access to the shelves from the full size bed. This way you could set an alarm clock or a drink on the shelves while you’re sleeping.
