Create twin bunk beds with stairs that makes a device that is safer than using a ladder. Measure and draw the design will not be too difficult, but the installation of bunk unit requires patience. All components must support the steps and the bed base for both beds, especially for rambunctious children or teens will sleep there. Be sure to use a wood finish or paint colors that create the desired artistic result because this project is likely to become the focus of a bedroom.
How to create a twin bunk beds with stairs, measure the mattresses you will use to begin the basic framework design. Build the basic framework for applying plywood platform under every mattress. Assemble all four boards together in a rectangle in which the design will be on the 2-inch sides. Bolt all the corners with two carriage bolts each. Attach each rectangular box with four separate 1-by-6-inch crosswise boards that are 44 inches long. Cut 3/4-inch plywood to form a mattress platform. Attach the plywood to rest on the cross boards.
Cut 4-inch square post material to fit the bed corners. Attach the bed backdrop to the posts with carriage bolts. Build a staircase at the end of the bed. Make stairwell by building stair stringers from sheets of 3/4-inch thick plywood. Nail tribes and treads on the stringers, so the twin bunk beds with stairs are a standalone unit that leads up to the top bunk. Construct a stairwell to surround the stairs before bolting the stair unit to the bed unit with carriage bolts. Construction stairwell at 3/4-inch thick plywood as well. Secure all railings for safety on one or both sides of each mattress.
