xxtk. Bunk Beds. September 29th , 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.
So you`ve got the perfect little log cabin, or chalet by the lake, or just want a country touch to your home. You want a log bunk bed, or two, but don`t know where to start. And they don`t carry them in your downtown furniture store. Not to worry, there are plenty of options available on the Internet. There are loft log bunk beds, twin over twin log bunk beds, full over full or even twin over queen. I haven`t seen a twin over king yet, but really the Amish can make any size you want. A lot of college students who looking to build an inexpensive loft bed might find an Amish loft bunk bed to be just the ticket, and some of them come with futons under them, too.
Bunk beds make so much sense because they are versatile. When your child is outgrowing the crib and you don`t know what the future holds, a good bunk bed could be all you need. Buy one with the option to separate the beds so you can use them apart or stacked. Buy one in a classic style that can be used with any kind of bedding to suit your child`s preferences over the years. Once all your children have used the bed, pass it on to the grandchildren or resell it. A quality bunk bed will withstand the use and abuse over time and still come out looking great.
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.
This cannot be said enough. The safety of your children should be your primary concern when constructing your bunk beds. Various national groups have been set up to monitor and test the safety of bunk beds. If you`re interested in a particular brand, ask if it meets the voluntary safety guidelines of the American Standards of Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the minimum safety standards of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Both of these groups have been around for a long time, and their approval indicates a quality, tested product. Make sure your mattress fits properly. A space greater than three inches should not be tolerated.
