I used the Loft Bed design as a starting point but modified it to meet our specs. We used the Full Size version (added the 15 inches to the width and also made all the legs 8 inches higher. We felt like the plan was great but we wanted a little more headroom underneath. This did make figuring out the ladder dimensions a bit complicated, but with some common sense (and a little trial and error) we were very pleased with the results! We originally were going to just purchase an IKEA Stora loft bed. It was on sale for approximately $300.00 plus shipping, which would have been an additional $300.00! Instead we built this and kept the price around $250.00. This bed is extremely sturdy, doesn't squeak at all, and can easily hold a full size adult. Thank you Ana for the great plans!!
