This is one of the bunk beds that was built for the Chi Omega House in Fayetteville, AR. There are 3 others in this style and 4 in a bookcase style. They were completed in July 2009.

They are designed to match the 10 singles that I finished up a couple weeks ago. It has a panels headboard design with a removable adjustable shelf at the top. I made it removable, so if the student thought it might be in the way, they could take it out. I also added another shelf for the bottom section. There is not a lot of space there but I wanted something that a cell phone or books laid down, could be placed.

The foot board is maple plywood with a hardwood cap placed on top. The ladder is solid maple. All of it is finished in a clear coat only.

What stops the person on the top bunk from rolling off the bed in their sleep?

Did you test them to see if they could hold the weight of 4 people (2 up and 2 down) simultaneously?

I remember my college days and my friends in the Chi-O house… ;-)
