A few years ago, my youngest son wanted to have more floor space and a larger desk in his somewhat cramped bedroom. We decided to build a loft bed similar to what you would see in a college dorm room.
It was built with 2×4s, 2×6s, carriage bolts a piece of plywood for the mattress to rest on. It was also wired for power with surface mount fixtures and BX for an industrial look. It was wired so that when he climbed up into bed, he could turn off all the desk lights. Not shown is the headboard/bookshelf/cubby.
The last picture show’s my oldest son helping out, doing some of the wiring.
Just a couple weeks ago, we converted it into a regular sized bed, and the wood from that is being repurposed into some panels and I build the “simple desk” project with it.
