My Husband made this twin bed for our son off the Alaska Cabin Bed plan. 

It was easy enough for him. To complete without any mistakes. Took aprox 3 days to complete,  about $130 in lumber. He used

6 (pine)2x4's &  1 sheet of cabinet grade Baltic Birch. He added a center support beam. 

Painted a white trim around drawer fronts  coordinate with white nightstand. Used magnet clasps on drawer flaps. The bed is solid enough for us to lie down and read bedtime stories with our son, and the bed doesn't even creak a sound. Easy to slide mattress off a little and change the sheets. I would highly reccomend this plan to others.
