Building Bunk Beds With Stairs

Twin Bunk Beds

Bunk beds with stairs are an ideal piece of furniture for young children sleeping in a small bedroom. The stairs allow the children to easily climb into bed without risking the fall caused by a ladder. The bunk structure doubles the amount of sleeping space in one bedroom. If only one child is sleeping in the room, extra space can be used for a desk or playground


Ask the farm where you buy your wood by cutting it to the desired length. Many will do this for free and grind uneven edges. If they will not help you, you can cut the wood yourself. Measure twice and cut once. Construct platform bunk bed frame around plywood plate. Use 5-inch bolts to secure two 7-foot-4-inch discs and two 4-foot supports together in a rectangle. Place wood on 2-inch sides and contact two bolts in each corner. Bolt five 4-foot rests periodically inside rectangular frame. These boards should be flat on 4-inch pages. Nail the 3/4-inch plywood plate to the top of the supports.

Place the stair bed frame on the long side and radar up two 4-times-4-hour posts below it. The top of services should be extended 2 feet further up the frame. Use bolts to secure the posts to the frame. Attach two more posts on the other side of the frame in the same way. Place the frame on the legs and make sure it is flat. Support bunk bed structure with cross beams. Use bolts to attach a 6-foot-8-inch 2-times-4 between the two long-side services that will be against the wall. Place this crossbeam along the floor. Attach another halfway between the floor and the mattress frame. Attach four feet long 2-by-4s the same way on both short sides.
