Teen Loft Bed

Submitted by KailuaGirl on Fri, 03/15/2013 - 12:59

I was inspired by what I saw on Ana's website. My daughter was obsessed with the PB Teen version of the loft bed, so I tweaked the plans here to make it more like the $2500 bed from the catalog!!!!! Yikes and don't even get me started on what the shipping to Hawaii would be....It was well worth the effort! My daughter loves her new loft bed...Now if I can just figure out a way to get the dog to love the high bed!!!
Cheers, Tina

Aloha Tina!

You did a great job! I was wondering, how high is the bed, room and clearance? We also live in Hawaii and my daughter's room is small. Any feedback on what modifications you made would be greatly appreciated! Mahalo!

Hi Dawn,
Yes, my daughter's room has low clearance, so I tweaked the loft bed height.
I determined what top clearance I could maximize that would allow my daughter to sit up in bed comfortably, but it will be tight as she grows. She's 5 feet now...
Then I tweaked the desk area height as well to maximize without too much of a struggle to get into the area.. I hope this reply is helpful..
Floor to ceiling height is 96 inches. desk area has clearance of 56 inches and from the top of the mattress to ceiling has a clearance of 28 inches.
Aloha, Tina

HI! There are no plans for this loft bed.. I used the plans on this site and just literally DIY'ed to fit my needs.. Sorry I know this doesn't help you much…
If you have a specific question, maybe I could help…
