Step 1: Cut to necessary dimensions
Step 2: Tools & Supplies Needed
-Washers, T-Nuts, Bolts
-2x6's (for beams only)
Step 3: Cut Wood
Use 2x4's to save money when building the legs of the loft. This will save you a considerable amount of money versus 4x4 posts. Make right angles with your cut 2x4's. Glue and nail them to form the legs of the loft.
Step 4: Construct ends of the loft
If you want you can size the plywood to fit in between the 2x6 support beams. I added a ripped 2x4 and nailed it to the plywood for less spring and flex in the plywood deck that supports the bed.
