Loft bunk beds – The best thing to do if you want to convert a single bed into a bunk is to build a standing frame around your already existing single bed so that this new frame can support a second single bed that will be placed directly above. The new frame will be on the floor and it can be in direct connection to the old single bed or left-hand stand. Bunk loft is one of the hallmarks of campus dorms. Two student’s share the narrow floor area decides that the best way to add a few rooms is to build up with a cot. Here’s a way to make it happen without worrying about your roomier or crashing through the upper British halfway through the term.
Build loft bunk beds. Measure the height and width of the area you plan to build. This is key because you need these measurements to know how much wood to buy. Get some wood. You need four posts, at least three pieces of wood to span the long section over the bed, and eight to serve as support for the horizontal part. Also decide if you want to build a separate ladder or just add more wood in the horizontal section. Boreholes start at the top of two of your posts. They should be about 6-12 inches from the top of the post. Then drill more holes in the bottom at the same distance. Lay them flat on the floor. Place one of your long pieces of wood between two posts so it sits on top and above the holes. Screw the beam.
Then to build loft bunk beds. Attach four of the meal horizontal beams to the posts. Use your starting hole as a guide. Upper beams should be just below your long beam on top. The bottom beams should be just below your other starting hole. Drill holes in other two posts. Get someone to help you raise your structure. Quickly screw the other two posts into horizontal beams extending from the top and bottom of the original posts. Screw in the vertical crown beam. Take the four remaining short beams and drill them into the outer parts of the post. This will provide support.
