Colorful Bunk Beds with Wraparound Shelves

Submitted by timgrimm on Tue, 01/02/2018 - 20:29

My sons have been ready for bunk beds for awhile and, being an apartment dweller, I wanted some that could be disassembled and reassembled. I really liked Ana's design for classic bunk beds. Because storage space is also at a premium for us, I thought to add wraparound shelves to the bed. I ended up with seven panels instead of four, plus shelving. Also, I wanted to add truncated safety railing to the bottom bunk. Lastly, I wanted to use a bright color scheme that incorporated some of my sons' favorite colors that would also serve to visually separate the shelves from the beds.

The construction plans are available in 11x17 PDF format from my blog, as are the source design files in Revit 2018 format.
