When I searched for loft bed plans online, I did not find any freely available plans that I liked. I decided to make my own plans for a wooden loft bed, and I am 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 .
The plans are available as a single page pdf. They are not the most detailed plans available, and do not provide step-by-step instructions, but they should be sufficient if you know how to use a saw and screws. The bed is designed so that the legs are attached with 8 bolts, and can be easily removed so that the legs store and travel flat. The 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! By using these plans, you assume full responsibility for any consequences. These plans worked well for me, but I do not guarantee that they will work for you.
