We have the possibility of family staying for the holidays so furnishing the spare bedroom became priority number one. First up was a bed. To gain another sleeping space we went with a bunk bed. It’s a clean 2×4 and 2×6 design with no screw heads showing on the outside. Total materials cost was about $135. Take that Ikea!

I also made a video of the build for those who are interested:

Nice design on this bunk bed , looks like it will be very strong and last for years. Ikea may sometimes be Cheaper in price than DIY but it is also usually Cheaper in Quality.

Thanks for posting. I really enjoyed the video….quick and to the point but not leaving out any important details.
Well done.
