Solid wood loft bed is one of the hallmarks of campus dorms. Two students share narrow floor space deciding that the best way to add some rooms is to build up with a loft bed. Here’s a way to make it happen without having to worry about your room or crashing through the top floor halfway through the semester.
Measure the height and width of the area you plan to build solid wood loft bed. This is the key because you will need these measurements to know how much firewood to buy. Get some wood. You will need four “inserts”, at least three pieces of wood to extend over the long section over the bed, and eight to act as a support for the horizontal part. Also decide if you want to build a separate ladder or just add more wood to the horizontal part. Drill starts holes in the top of two of your posts. They should be about 6 to 12 inches from the top of the post. Then drill more holes in the bottom at the same distance. Lay them flat on the floor.
Place one of your long pieces of wood loft bed between the two inserts so that it sits at the top and over the starting holes. Screw the beam into place. Attached four of the supper horizontal beams to posts. Use your starter hole as guides. The upper beams should just below your long beam on top. The bottom beams should be just under other start holes. Drill holes in two other posts. Get someone to help you raise your structure. Quickly screw the other two services to the horizontal beams, extending from the top and bottom of the original posts.
