Loft bed with storage – Building a loft bed with storage below is not much harder than building a loft on its own. The entire project will take only two to three hours when you have collected your tools and building materials. When done, you will 20 square feet of under-bed floor space with shelves lining one side. These directions are for a double size loft bed but you can change for other mattress sizes by adjusting the timber dimensions. Cut all the timber into the dimensions listed in the materials section. Cut a 36-inch plank into three pieces, each 12 inches by 12 inches. Cut each 12 inches with 12 inches square on the diagonal, creating a total of six triangular pieces. Sand all the faces of your timber. It does not have to be polished smooth, but make sure your children will not get any splinters.
Arrange your four beams loft bed with storage in a rectangle with shorter beams inside longer beams. All four bars should rest on the narrow face. Screw the rectangle together with two wooden screws per joint. Screw in through the light of the longer light cone and into the center of the end of the shorter beam. Place your plywood slab on top of the frame so that all faces flush. Screw sheets in place with one screw per corner, passing through the plywood into the beam below. Move all components into the bedroom where you plan to install the bed. Moving pieces will be much easier than moving the ready-made bed. Set a position in the corner of your frame, with a frame over the post and the position in a row at the angle formed by the two beams.
Screw the position instead with four wooden screws, driven through the plywood and at the end of the post. Strengthen the position by running a screw through each beam and into the side of the post. Repeat steps two to four for the three other legs. Set the frame on its four legs loft bed with storage. You may want to get help with this step as it is heavy and still not fully stable. Connect the two positions on the long side of the bed closest to the wall using a 72-inch plank. Place the planks so that the bottom edge is 36 inches above the ground. Attach it to the positions, with three screws per connection, driven into a diagonal through the rectangle formed by the overlapping shelf and post.
