FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • Do you have queen plans?

A queen bed is both longer and wider that a double/full bed. Because you would need special lifting hardware to help put the bed away, I have not made plans for a queen bed.

  • Can I build the bed with smaller shelves?

The design is fully customizable. you can build the bed without shelves, more narrow shelves or maybe even just one shelf bank. 

  • Do I need special skills to build this bed?

If you can read a tape measure and know how to run a circular saw, you will be able to build this bed. If you think it may be too difficult, there is probably someone who is just waiting for to ask them for help!

  • How long will it take to build?

Tough question to answer. But you should be able to get it together in a weekend, minus the time it takes to add the finish (paint/stain/etc.) to the bed. I will say, pre-finishing your plywood saves a lot of time!

  • Can I change the design?

yup. Keep the fundamental dimensions (ie pivot point location, support arm length) constant and you could do whatever you want. It's your project to make your own.

  • Can I have the plans for free?

I have spent a great deal of time and money to come up with this design. I am happy to share it with those who are interested and love to see projects that have been completed. I often donate money from the sales of these plans to support my favourite youtube channels (including my own) or use the money to try other projects. I don't like to saying no, but no, you can't have them for free.
