Bunk bed plans to build a triple bunk bed, which 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. This triple bunk bed measures 75 inches tall, by 42" wide, by 81" long and sleeps three in a room with 8 foot ceilings. 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 beds). 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 triple bunk bed, including all screws and bronze plated furniture lags that give the bed a professional appearance. Our hardware kits are higher quality and a better price than comparable hardware from hardware stores and home centers. (*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!

Great plans with excellent detail. Lists, pictures, ideas. We are so extremely pleased with the final result.

Our kids were so excited to be sleeping in their new bed. When we told people about how we were building a triple-decker, they were concerned at how much head room the kids would have, but the results ended up being just fine, especially for our young children. There is less head-room on the bottom bunk than the middle, and more room on the top for our oldest. It was a lot of work to make this bed with little ones in tow, but as our family grows, I know that we will make this bed again. The plans were well written, and we were glad that we bought the hardware kit.

my Dad yesterday mentioned that he had some bunkbeds built recently at his home in Chipley. He told me I should look up the company because they sell plans. I asked him if it was Bunk Bed Unlimited and told him that we are in the process of building our third set of triple bunks from your plans! Small world :) He raves over the bunk beds that you made for him. Many blessings, and thank you for great plans. Our three sets of triples will soon be headed on a boat to Korea, where we are moving in May. You'll be world famous!

I ordered and downloaded a drawing set for the Triple Bunk Bed about 4 years ago and built one for my daughters. Now I need to build another for the boys

thank you - this is our 2nd set of triples we have made using your plans. The first set built 8 years ago is still holding strong!!

After many years of our boys' wear and tear, we donated the beds to a children's home -- for more rough and tumble play and use.
