Sleep and play loft bed

Submitted by hams1856 on Mon, 07/11/2011 - 20:33

This was my first project from the plans I got from this site. I had a blast building it. Made it out of poplar so that it would be strong enough to support either me or my wife on it with our daughter. Directions were simple and easy to follow. Key to this project as mentioned is to be precise in measurements and square! My wife and daughter both love this bed and now have 3 more projects lined up for me. I am so lucky!!! What family wants you and urges you to build more things from wood!

Love the colors! We are going to do a combo of these plans and the cottage loft bed for my step daughter. She's almost 7 and really too tall for the cottage loft bed but she wants the playhouse look of it. I'm hoping of coming up with a way to remove the "walls" when she's a little older. I'm thinking of putting it in a corner like you did and then just do the exposed side and front. Your family is very lucky you are so willing to build for them:)
