xxtk. Bunk Beds. August 22nd , 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.
When searching for a twin full bunk bed for your children, Amazon offers new and used items with budget friendly prices. The designs and colors are right there at your fingertips and the photos show what the bed looks like already assembled. Usually, these photos will show views of the front, side and back of the product, and comments posted will give you a better idea of how others feel about this purchase.
Last but not least, be sure to measure before you buy. Last year we sold a couple of log bunk beds to somebody in Montana. They absolutely loved the beds, but had bought two for the room and soon found out that only one could comfortably fit. Since we are in Michigan and they in Montana, it would have cost quite a bit to ship it back. They ended up selling the extra bed on ebay, but the problem could have been avoided with a bit of careful measuring up front.
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.
