Building Bunk Beds Full Over Full
Bunk beds full over full are often found in dorms, cottages or camps. They provide a larger sleeping space in each floor for those who enjoy a little extra space. Building bunk beds for full mattresses is a relatively simple task, and can be done quickly with standard building work, hardware and tools. A bunk bed like this might not be as decorative as the frames bought in store, but it will be cheaper to build.
To create frames, position two 78-inch discs on the edge, parallel to each other, and 54 inches apart. Set two 54-inch discs perpendicular to them on the edge, and 75 inches apart. Place a 57-inch board on top of one of the frames so the ends are level with the sides of 78-inch discs. The 57-inch board must also be parallel to the 54-inch discs, and 16 inches away from one of them. Turn the board to the 78-inch discs in this position. Screw another board to the same frame in the same way, but 16 inches away from the opposite 54-inch board. Repeat this process on the second frame with two last 57-inch discs. These frames will keep your box of bunk beds full over full and mattresses.
To create your bottom bunk, lay two 72-inch discs so they are parallel and 78 inches apart. Lift the 72-inch discs 1½ inches above the ground to screw through 54-inch discs, into 72-inch discs. Use 8 screws for this task, so four screws indicate each 72-inch on board. Screw through 54-inch discs on this frame of bunk beds full over full and into 72-inch discs, just as you did in the last step. Screw through 54-inch discs on the opposite end and into the last two 72-inch discs. The 72-inch discs on each side should be parallel and 47 inches apart. If the frame is up and down the bottom frame will be 19 1/2 inches above the ground. You do not want this. The 57-inch discs should be under the two frames designed to hold your mattresses. Put your box of feathers in the frames and mattresses on top of the box springs.
