DIY Bed Loft for Double Size bed
Slowpoke3 years ago
Excellent job. Most worthy of a more thorough Instructable. Please consider posting one. Measurements, wood used, etc. I like it but please expand upon this Instructable.
Think it would work for a queen maybe even a king size mattress (with adequate support of course) My husband and I live in a good size studio apartment but space is still a premium and the bed takes the largest portion of usable space, so I wanted to get an opinion before I set out to put this idea to work. Just don't want to waste my time and money if I'm going to end up on the floor unexpectedly.

That would be a very large bed to have in the air, but with popper supports I think it would be do-able. I believe I used 1x4s for the under struts. You would most likely have to use 2x4s and more of them. If you planned it right I believe it would turn out great, and if you do this make sure to take pictures along the way and maybe even post an instructable or picture gallery like I have done.

I know that slide show type posts are allowed but your still supposed to write a little something about what your posting, just some basic information will make it less boring. This looks like a really nice build but I hope your going to add a rail for safety

I am planning on adding a rail, but I dont think I will fall off. I am sleeping as close to the wall as possible right now. One false turn and I'd fall off.
