Loft Cabin Bed

I built the original cabin bed for my son when the plans first came out and it has been such a huge hit. After seeing the loft version on RH, I decided to modify the original plans in an effort to give my son more floor play space in his room. The loft bed was his Christmas gift and I've never seen him more excited (he's four). Both he and his brother spend hours a day playing in the bed and underneath. It's hands down the most satisfying project I've built.

Hello, will you be adding plans for the loft bed? It looks as though it is only the original plans from the Cabin bed. Thanks!

This is absolutely stunning!!! I want to build the same one for my kids' rooms! Did I mention I love the colors as well? You did such a great job! Did you have to add anything for additional support since it's lifted higher than the original plan? Anything else I should be aware of or anything you can share if I were to build this bed? Thank you so much!

Thank you! I'm so sorry for the delayed response. I don't seem to receive notifications of comments on here. No, I did not have to add any additional supports. It is really sturdy. The build itself is very similar to the original, I just adjusted the height of the bed, and changed the dimensions of the upper cabin to leave more space on the bottom for play or another mattress. Hope that helps some. The plans are linked above in the "blog link" section if you're still interested.
