Bunk bed with desk, shelves and drawers

While I was home alone I spent almost the entire time building a new bed for Afton.  I wanted it complete so I could surprise her when she got home.  I got the plans from and modified them a bit.  This was more work than I thought.  I worked a few full evenings then spent 2 straight 14 hour days in the shop.  I didn't get it quite done but it was enough to surprise her.

Afton loves the new bed (Avery and Drew do too).

The left side will get 5 drawers.

The desk will get 2 drawers too.

The ladder is temporary.  I'll make a nicer one later.


  1. Great job Chad !!!!


  2. So much for resting on the hammock while you were home alone. . . Great job on the bed Chad. Your kids are lucky to have such a "handy" dad. Hand made furniture is always special !!!


  3. Very impressive. Bet she loves it.
