This is a plan to build a twin over twin stackable bunk bed with a trundle drawer underneath. The bunk and trundle bed can sleep three children or adults for many years. Made of solid wood, it can easily accommodate adult weight in all three beds because our unique fastening system is extremely durable.
You don't just get a few pages of instruction with our plans, this 20+ page comprehensive plan explains how to select lumber, cut, sand, drill, apply finish and assemble a beautiful wooden bunk bed that is as solid and sturdy as those built by Bunk Beds Unlimited. It comes with a store-ready quick shopping list so that you can head right out and purchase the materials you need to get started. This plan makes use of widely available easy to obtain off-the-shelf lumber and materials. You can build it even if you have little or no woodworking experience using a circular saw, an electric drill, a power sander and a few hand tools. By purchasing our plan set you can build your own Bunk Bed saving hundreds of dollars. It is a great first woodworking project or family project.
This plan covers construction of the bunk bed only, or a bunk with trundle. The trundle bed drawer has higher sides to hide the lower mattress when not in use. Free plans are available for a set of two or three storage drawers on our free plans page. This model of bunk bed can separate into two beds that can be made identical by swapping one headboard and one footboard from each bed. The trundle can also double as a huge storage drawer. This bunk measures 65” tall by 81” long by 42 ½” wide and uses two twin-size standard mattresses. The trundle measures 74” in length and holds a mattress that is 68” in length. The finished bed will stand up to daily use for many years and continue to look nice. Many of the beds we have manufactured have been in daily use in hotels, camps, shelters and other institutions for 15 years or more, supporting adult weight and still look great.
The hardware kit has all hardware needed to complete the bunk bed only, or bunk with trundle or storage drawers underneath. It includes all fasteners and bronze plated furniture lags that give the bunk a professional appearance. Additional hardware such as wooden drawer handles and heavy-duty carpet casters for the drawers is available by ordering the bunk and drawer hardware kit.
Our hardware kits are higher quality, much more convenient and a better price than if you purchase the items at your local home center or hardware store. (*Please note that the lumber is not included in the hardware kit.*)
Price includes shipping on hardware kits to all 50 United States (others write for details). Great value!

The bed went together very smoothly. The biggest challenge I had was dealing with the local box store buying lumber. Their stock was very picked over. It took a little extra sanding but, the bed looks amazing and very sturdy.

Thankyou so much for your help. We started assembling the bunks last night. They're turning out beautifully.

Thanks for your detailed bunk bed plans. They enabled my Dad and me to successfully build the twin over full bunk beds over the holidays and have two delighted little boys.
