Just finished building these bunks for a very time sensitive job. I wasn’t keen on the initial design but with some minor tweaks made it work. The designer and home owner wanted the ladder incorporated into the end frames, to save floor space. The beds will be painted and ready for the summer, then I will add Vertical T&G wainscoting to the walls, solid middle panels, and ceilings. Upholstered, head and side panels will also be added. The safety rail will be removed and a custom iron rail will be installed. It was a fun project for the shop and field. You can see I had to jack up the ceiling to install, and the beds are now somewhat structural.

I typically don’t paint. I will sometimes prime paint grade projects but I have had problems in winter before, so it’s easier to let the pros take care of paint.

Have your say...
