Looking to maximize the space of your apartment?
A platform bed is an ideal way to gain storage and create a comfortable space.
Create a custom platform bed following the building basics show here for any room! This project can be completed over the weekend using tools and materials that costs less then most bed frames.
Questions & Comments are always welcome,
Here are the suggested tools and materials for building your platform bed.
Quantity: For this project I used (10) 2x4s, (3) 2x6s, (3) 2x2s, (2) 4x8 3/8" OSB, (1) box drywall screws, (1) box 3" wood screws, (1) gal paint.
Cost: All materials cost around $80 from HD/Lowes/Habitat. All tools cost under $120 and were purchased refurbished online or used off craigslist.
Fasteners: I recommend using all screws for the project. In the past I used primarily nails but always required a few screws. Depending on the boards used for the siding you may need to pre-drill and use smaller screws.

Determine the size f the platform based on the space available and requirements of your mattress.
Cut the long pieces to length allowing for the width of the two end pieces. The long pieces are 3" less then the overall length if you are working with 2x4s (dimensioned lumber) Secure each 2x4 connection with (2) screws.
