i couldn’t find any good plans either, so i measured a queen size mattress and built to fit… http://lumberjocks.com/projects/9909

Building without a plan was much more satisfying for me, and a great learning experience – I used cheap wood so big mistakes weren’t too costly. Good luck!

Mind if I tag along with your project? I’m looking at two different castle beds as inspiration for my boys.

and also

I haven’t started trying to plan on how to make it or even enable it to be taken apart and moved….

You’re welcome. That website is phenomenal if you enjoy tinkering. However, I really like that castle bed you posted. I would have never left that thing if I had that as a kid. You could have some really fun fort wars from the top of that.

sketch-up would be a nice way to design a castle bed. measure a twin mattress and go for it! build yourself a castle master piece!
