Junior Bunk Bed with curtains and dress area

Submitted by carnini on Thu, 06/06/2013 - 05:38

This is a modified version of the camp bed. I added several curtains using some metal conduct and one at the end for a place to hang up dresses. I plan on building some storage under the platform and might replace the entire stair area platform with a storage unit.

Project wise:
Instead of 2x4 for the corners, I used 4x4 fir posts in each of the corners, for about $50 dollars more it is a much stronger bed.
The bottom of the bed uses 2x4 as rails along the length and plywood across the distance under the mattress. I am looking for an old twin bed metal rails which I will be much strong to replace the 2x4 and a cleaner look.
Also I did not add stairs from the platform to the floor.
Not pictured is a single step the width of the end of the landing. The dimensions are about 10 inches deep 15 inches off the floor bolted onto a 4x4 corner post and the end of the platform with heavy duty corner brackets. Takes up must less room then stairs which I did not have the room for.
