My father and I are trying to build this TODAY, and would love for some measurement modifications for adding a trundle underneath! Please help :) Also, where is the plan for the trundle that fits under here, and do you put it up on wheels?

What type of wood should I use for the posts? I dont think 4x4 posts are available in pine, could I just use spruce/hemlock?

Do you have this plan in full but modified to use a twin size trundle? I would love to make it for my son’s room but we really need a trundle bed. Or, do you offer another full size bed to build that has a trundle?
