Bunk bed plans to build a twin extra-long (XL) stackable bunk bed and a standard length twin trundle that also doubles as a storage drawer. It can comfortably sleep three children or adults. 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 set of two or three storage drawers on our free plans page. This bunk measures 65” tall by 88” long by 42 ½” wide and uses two twin extra-long (XL) mattresses. The trundle measures 81” in length and holds a standard length twin mattress. 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 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 bed 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 storage or trundle drawers is available by ordering the bed and drawers 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.

Plans are well done. I have not completed the construction yet, so the review is premature. Dowels were left out of the hardware purchase, but customer service has promised to get them out to me.

Nicely laid out plans for getting basic measurements and needed materials to complete the project. We adjusted a few things such as the height of the top bunk and we went without the extra 4x2 guard around the top. Other than that, the completed project is a very sturdy bunk that fit in our budget.
