Bunk bed plans and hardware kit (with free shipping) to build an extra-tall triple bunk bed that holds three twin size mattresses. 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 triple bunk bed alone, or with storage drawers or a trundle underneath. This triple bunk bed measures 84 inches tall, by 42 1/2" wide, by 81" long and sleeps three or four in a room with 9 foot or higher ceilings. This bunk holds three standard twin mattresses. IIf putting a trundle underneath, this bunk becomes a Quadruple Bunk Bed sleeping four people! The trundle measures 74” in length and holds a twin mattress that is 68” in length. The headroom space in each bunk is approximately as follows: upper bunk mattress to ceiling 28 - 29", middle bunk mattress to bunkie board on top bunk 20 - 21", lower bunk 18 - 19" (*please note that use of very thick or pillow top mattresses is not recommended with any bunk 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 storage drawers or trundle bed 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!

We were able to finish the project last weekend and since my hardware store didn't stock 2x2x6s I had to purchase 8s anyway
Otherwise, the plans were very exact and easy to follow My granddaughters love thier new bed and the additional space they now have in their room.
After my wife finishes painting I'll forward a pic or two
Thank you for providing a great and simple to follow plan
