Hi Aaron! First, welcome to Lumber Jocks!

You are correct that a queen mattress is 60” x 80”. The bed frame is usually sized a bit larger. Especially if using a box spring that recesses in the frame. This is just to allow some extra room so everything’s not tight to the box or mattress. It also would allow some room to get at the bedding with out pinching fingers.

The only bed I ever made I added an extra inch around the mattress. So your’s would be 62” x82”. You could decrease that but I would still leave some room.
