I guess this is my contribution to Get Woodworking Week.
How to build a loft bed. This is for a full size bed. Everything you need to build it as well as the SketchUp file for you to modify as needed is here. The footboard side is a full ladder. All slats are 2×4s with a small rabbit to fit in a sub rail. The headboard side has 3 shelves below with a plywood back to add lateral support. The frame is mounted at 5’ off the ground. I still have to sand everything and round some corners but the build is essentially done. I used a lot of scraps for this but total cost should be around $120 depending on location. A shopping list, all diagrams, the SketchUp file, and 6 videos covering the build.
Please use included diagrams to verify shopping list before you purchase materials.
