xxtk. Bunk Beds. September 13th , 2017.
Bunk beds built to those regulations are generally built to hold an adult weighing up to 250 pounds. If you are pushing the limits, try cedar instead of pine. In the beds we sell, the cedar logs are 5 ½ to 6 inches in diameter, while the pine is about 3 ½ inches in diameter. They are both built to federal specifications, and the pine bunk beds are very solid and strong, but if there is a question in your mind, go for the bigger logs. And of course, you can always put the big fella on the bottom, too.
The plans included with these beds begin by telling you to construct each bed separately, and then, in a reverse Siamese-twin kind of operation, how to put them back together. The bunk beds, when stacked, should be as solid as the single bed unit by itself. This is usually easier said than done. Next comes supporting the mattresses. When it comes to the wood required for the job, plywood will work, but why not use back springs to make sure your child`s bed is durable. They will be sturdier, but also provide a much more comfortable slumber for your kids.
Plans For Bunk Beds On A Budget. Times are tight nowadays, and if you`re at all handy with tools, you may have considered building some furniture for your family. If you`re thinking of choosing bunk beds as one of those plans, please make sure you take extra time to research the many different specifications and safety features needed in a bunk bed. You may think it`s cheaper to build it yourself; it may not necessarily be so.
Yet another kind of bed is frequently termed as a loft bed. Here there is only one top bunk and directly below you have a space that you can use for various functions. Most commonly this extra space down below can be used for a study space having a work desk and a chair - great for homework! Another idea for use will be to make storage space or just enough room to get an easy chair as a place to relax -- ideal for a young adult within a cramped room. In this case the bedroom would be only for one individual and by fitting a loft bed it is possible to make a more valuable room space. Space is often the primary reason for fitting any type of bunks in a bedroom.
Of course, there are many skilled people out there who could accomplish this rather daunting task with no problem. There are others, who, perhaps after viewing one too many home-repair shows, now feel themselves fully qualified to do any type of construction involving assorted power tools. Bunk beds are different. There is nothing more important than the safety and security of your family, and bunk beds present multiple opportunities for catastrophic failure.
