Loft Bed

08 Aug 2009

When I searched for loft bed plans online, I didn’t find any freely available plans that I liked. I decided to make my own plans for a wooden loft bed, and I’m making these plans available for free. These plans may be used and redistributed freely under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial 3.0 United States License Creative Commons License.

The plans are available as a single page pdf. They’re not the most detailed plans available, and they don’t provide step-by-step instructions, but they should be sufficient if you’re comfortable with some basic tools. The bed’s designed so that the legs are attached with 8 bolts, and can be easily removed so that the legs store and travel flat. These plans are for a twin mattress, but can easily be adapted to other sizes. If you wanted, you could easily build a desk into the bed over the second ladder rungs.

Disclaimer: I am not responsible for anything that might result from your use of these plans. By using these plans, you assume full responsibility for any consequences. These plans worked well for me, but I do not guarantee that they’ll work for you.
