Teen bunk beds – A queen size bunk bed is really unorthodox furniture, but can be a great addition to all other places where sleeping conditions are crowded like a college dorm or vacation home. This bunk bed project will be the same as for smaller mattresses unless you have to pay particular attention to support the middle of the mattress. These plans are for a very basic design using cheap materials, but you can easily convert them by adding extras or switching to more expensive timber
How to build queen size teen bunk beds. Drill four holes each of the 80-inch beams using a drill bit of the same diameter as your bolt. Set two 80-inch beams and two 27-inch beams in a rectangle with the longer beams on the outside. Build a total of four rectangles. Put two rectangles together to form a larger rectangle the size of a queen mattress. Place two plywood slabs over the rectangle so that the edges flush with the rectangle. Strengthen the plywood with two evenly distributed screws along each edge. Turn the mattress frame over. Place one of the 80-inch strips so it runs along the two middle beams that cover both of them. Screw strip into place with 12 evenly spaced screws, dazzling placement so every other screw is in another beam. This will help prevent sagging in the middle of your frame.
Stay four holes in each of the positions with the same bit you made for your other drill. Drill two sets of holes, in a line perpendicular to the length of the positions, 2 3/4 inches and 3 1/2 inches from the edge. Place a number of holes one foot from one end of the post and one set one foot from the other end. Move all the pieces in the bed to the room where you intend to set up the bed. Set up your four positions wherever they will be when the teen bunk beds are finished. Move a platform in position between the posts. Put the other platform on top of the first one. Lift it up to the level, the other set holes and bolt it into place. For most people this step is impossible without assistants.
