Three FAQ's About Building A Bunk Bed There are many important questions to ask when you want to start building your very own bunk bed. Three questions come up more often than others, and must be answered before any construction begins. Not asking these simple questions could lead to serious injury or even death. In one year alone there are over 36,000 injuries caused from improper construction and use of lofted beds. By making sure you know the answer to these questions, you will reduce the risk of injury or death. Question #1: Can I build a bunk bed if I don't have any experience in construction or working with tools? Yes. But there is an important caveat here. Unless you are incredibly skilled in building (I'm talking you are a carpenter by trade), you should use some type of plans, diagrams, and instructions to build your piece of furniture. See my link at the bottom of this page for more information on the best plans on the market. Question #2: How long will it take me to build a lofted bed? Building a loft bed can take days if you don't know the steps to take. However, if you know exactly what you need to do the process shouldn't take you longer than a few hours. Most people overestimate the amount of time it takes to build a bunk bed. In my experience my quickest results came when using some sort of pre-made plan or diagrams. Question #3: Is it safe for me to build my own furniture? Yes and no. It is safe if you have proper advice on what you're doing. Like I mentioned previously the best results often come when you are using some sort of pre-made plan that includes diagrams, videos, and step by step tutorials that are written for the layman. Building your own furniture becomes incredibly unsafe if you think you can do it without assistance or guidance from someone that has been there before. Hopefully if you had any of these questions prior to building your own bunk bed set I've helped you answer your questions.
