Space-Saving Loft Bed
One look and you can see that this sharp-looking loft bed would be a treat for any young person to settle into and call home.
It's really more than just a bed — it's practically a furnished two-story apartment. Let's start the tour on ground level. Here you'll find the spacious study featuring a large desktop with handy storage. And from there, it's just a short climb to the comfortable, secure, "second floor" loft. There's no denying this is a large-scale project, but you'll find that building it doesn't have to be a big job. For ease of moving and assembly, it all breaks down into manageable pieces. You build each section with simple but solid joinery and then turn to carriage bolts and a wrench to hold everything together. And if two beds work better for you, there is a bunk bed option.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
