Product Overview

Loft Bed Plans

Instructions for how to build a Loft Bed twin-sized standard height. This Loft Bed Plan measures 65 inches in height, by 42" wide, by 81" long (outside dimensions). The height from floor to the bottom of the bed measures 48 inches. We also sell a tall loft bed plan that would have 58" of clearance beneath.   The space inside (underneath) the bed is 75" in length and 42" in depth. It makes a great storage and play area. It uses widely available easy to obtain materials and a standard single size mattress. 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 Loft Bed saving hundreds of dollars and still have a good quality solid sturdy bed like those built by Bunk Beds Unlimited. The hardware kit includes all bolts, screws needed to complete the loft or bunk bed. Additional hardware such as wooden drawer handles and heavy-duty carpet casters for the storage drawers is available by ordering the bed and drawers hardware kit. (*Please note that lumber is not included.*) Our hardware kits are higher quality, much more convenient and usually a better price than if you purchase the items at your local home center. Price includes shipping on hardware kits to all 50 United States (others write for details). Great value.

    Great instructions

    Posted by Laurie on 1st Sep 2016

    I am very happy with the plans. It is a simple plan for a very sturdy bed. The instructions were very through with good tips/insights that were helpful. I'm a beginner builder and I was able to build the loft bed for my son with very little help from my husband. The hardware kit was good quality (my husband was satisfied) and I had plenty of extra screws and bolts. I will probably build another one for my daughter when she gets old enough to use it.

    Sturdy bed that is easy to build.

    Posted by Mark on 22nd Aug 2015

    The plans are thorough. You may want to change from lag screws to furniture type fine thread bolts and inserts if you will be taking this bed apart for multiple moves for a dorm room. The lags are fine if you are building and leaving it together. The lag screws from Bunk Beds Unlimited are good quality. However, you can find similar quality at one big box store if you look carefully. I would not recommend using the normal hex-head lag bolt as Bunk Beds suggest. My daughter's dorm mates liked the looks of her loft bed. Good luck in building yours. I would definitely recommend using a router to eliminate sharp edges.

    First time furniture maker- Success!

    The plans I purchased for the loft bed were very easy to understand, even for someone who had never made anything like this before. My Grandson loved it and now I have an order for another one for my Grandaughter.

    Very sturdy design

    Posted by ~Erin on 25th Nov 2013

    We made a few modifications so the loft would fit into our roof line & to accommodate an XL twin mattress. We tucked a standard twin & boxspring under it, making a mock bunk bed. The kids love it!
