Next, build the 2x4 bed support. We made ours using the self tapping wood screws (2-3/4" length but similar lengths would work just fine). Make sure this area is very square. Then attach the two pieces to the walls in the room and together using the 2-3/4" screws. You will need longer lag screws to attach 4x4s to the wall.
I decided to use the 2x8s to support the mattress because it creates a nice sized cavity for drawers. 2x4 or 2x6 framing would have been fine too if you are not doing the drawers. If doing drawers take extra care to make sure the boards are attached square so you don't have a cockeyed drawer that doesn't slide right.

I have enjoyed all 12 episodes of your Tiny House build, but I am still waiting for your plan on how you built your kitchen in this Tiny House! When should I expect to see it, or did I miss something! Lol! Thanks, Angie

Hinging the queen bed like the trundle
Love this design. Quick question though would it be terribly difficult or too heavy to make that upper section of the queen bed (with the pull out drawers) into a box with those cool hinges like the trundle has to utilize all that space? Thanks p.s. The house looks awesome.

Hello, we used construction
Hello, we used construction grade lumber to build, mostly 2x4s and 4x4s. All materials should be available at Home Depot or similar.

Hi there I am wanting to build two of these this weekend for my large family. At some points my celings are 6 foot high. Could you possibly help me modify these plans (since I am new at doing this kind of stuff)! Any advise is great. I would like to do this asap!
