xxtk. Bunk Beds. September 03rd , 2017.
A good way to learn about bunk bed construction before you attempt it on your own is to help a friend put his bunk beds together. Usually, if you think about it, pre-packaged bunk beds come with the "plans" to build them. They outline the tools that you will need, the nuts and bolts that you`re supposed to have, and give step-by-step instructions for helping you do it yourself.
What is the cost of the bed? Dollars don`t always determine quality. You can buy wonderful, well made beds for a great price. However, if the price is too good to be true, it probably is. That $159.00 bunk bed at your local discount store looks like a great buy but is it? I challenge you to see what you are really getting for your money. A bed that is made to withstand years of hard use and still look good will cost you a little more than a bed designed for young children to use a few years. If you are buying one to last through the years, make sure it has provisions for growing children.
Coaster Kid`s GI Child Bunk Bed with Slide and Tent. If you are looking for an interesting bed for your kid, this should be a good choice. It features a bunk bed on top and a slide and tent below. It has been crafted from durable steel tubing. It works as a sleeping area and a play area. Twin / Full Pine Wood & Metal Convertible Futon Bunk Bed. If you are looking for a bed set and a sitting area, this is the perfect choice. Use the top as a twin bed and the bottom as a convertible futon bed.
Another option to consider is the type of ladder you want with your log bunk bed. Some of the Amish beds have the ladders built right into the end of the bed, so you don`t have a ladder leaning out from the bed. Others have a moveable ladder that can hook on the end or the side. In many cases, the amount of space available determines the type of bunk bed you buy. If you have a small room, the larger cedar logs may seem too massive. If you don`t have room for a slanted ladder, however, you may opt for the cedar bunk bed anyway that has the ladder built in. If you have a larger room or larger people, you may opt for the larger cedar logs.
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.
