"Thanks Dr. Phil. This is an awesome bed."
This very creative
family (above) customized their lofts with unique safety rails and a very nice
two-tone stain and paint finish.
1) I just wanted to write
and let you know that we were very pleased with the loft bed we purchased. I
painted my son's bedroom furniture first before we put his bed together.
Instructions were great and easy to follow and it is a great product. If you
follow your instructions it will turn out great. I primed it as you suggested
and then painted and it looks wonderful. And for my son...he loves it!!!!!
His exact words "It is so cool - I love it!"
2) "We recently bought your youth loft bed for our six
year old daughter. We redecorated a bigger bedroom for her and your bed was part of
our project. She absolutely loves it. It was easy to put together and being unfinished
gave us a blank canvas to work with. Her favorite thing about the bed??? The "hideout"
underneath. She has hardly come out since we moved her in there. I found your photo
gallery so helpful for ideas in painting and decorating. You have some very
I finally got time and remembered to send you some pictures of what we did with
the queen-sized bed loft that we ordered last year. It turned out FABULOUS!
It's hard to believe that my daughter's room is only 10 x 11! With the loft,
it feels huge! Thanks, Rachel.
4-5) We did a room makeover and decorated our daughter's room into
a Hanna Montana Loft.
Thanks again for your help and great to do
business with you!
Thanks for the great plan. I built the bed wondering if it would be strong
enough to hold me and my son both (we read together in bed), but that ended up
not being a problem. It's very, very solid.
Attached is the picture of our completed loft bed. We have to touch up a few
spots of the stain- where we missed, but aside from that- it looks great. We
like the quality, and it was very easy to assemble. Thanks! Angela.
8)Thanks so much
for your great loft bed kit! My daughter absolutely loves her new "tween"
room. You customized the height for us, and we stained it lightly and
added polyurethane - looks great! Your customer service was excellent and
her new "two-level" room is a big hit with her friends. We could never fit
a desk into her small room without this!
9) I wanted to let you know that
the loft bed kit we ordered was delivered extremely promptly. My ten year old
boy is ecstatic.
I finished it using
PolyShades all-in-one stain and
finish. Thanks for a great, economical
loves his bed and room and yes, his trains are working trains so he can happily
sit on his wonderful loft bed and control the train. Thank you!!
11) Daniel absolutely loves it!!! That is an
awesome bed! You did a wonderful job on it. We couldn't have asked for a better
bed. We put a curtain rod on along the one side so he could have a "fort". He
goes underneath to play with his train tracks. We put a chalkboard on the other
side by the ladder and he just has a ball with his new bed.
12) I just wanted to let you know that my daughter Gabriela
loves her new loft bed. We painted it white to match her bedroom furniture.
We appreciate your advice and the customizations you made to the bed to make it
fit our needs.
13) Thanks so much for all your help in making this holiday truly magical.
14) You should be hearing soon from friends of ours
who were very happy with our solution to a small home and would like to purchase
for their kids.
11 year old daughter LOVES her new bed. She enjoys having the extra
space under the bed. She now has a futon under there. This gives added
comfort, and room for friends to stay over. As she says, "It gives the room a
whole new really cool look."
16) We LOVE our
bed, and I refer to you like CRAZY, all over the country (I am on several yahoo
groups!)! My son loves his bed! And it has been SO great for extra
storage/floor space! We have even considered getting one for ourselves! :)
Thanks again! You are so honest (you refunded us the shipping difference) and I
can't say enough about the bed! Thanks again! We are VERY happy
customers, and if you ever need a referral, give them our name.
I built this for my daughter at Oklahoma State
University using your plans. I improvised a shelf for clock, lamp, books etc.
Hi! Our two beds came from you very timely.
The boys were running down the street with the FedEx man because I showed them how to
track the beds' arrival from the FedEx website.
The boys really love these lofts! One brother loves blue, the other loves red,
so we used a multi-colored rug and stripe to make their valances to pull the
colors together. I put the chain down the middle to show where the boundary
line is between the two "territories," and the boys have to keep their toys
stored within their loft square space. It has really cut down the fighting over
space between the two of them. I used the same type of chain to hang the
valance on the window and we filled sand buckets with cement to make the
boundary pots. They have plenty of room now to have a desk for homework and
playing with their friends. Thank you!
Thank you for your help in customizing our daughter's loft to fit her room. She
was more than happy to trade in her toddler bed for it and has been enjoying
having tea parties underneath.
20) Hi, we just ordered our second bed from you. Loved
My 9 year old son LOVES his new
"Camouflage" Loft Bed. And I must say that I am quite pleased, as well. It is
a sturdy piece of furniture. I was surprised at how small and efficient the
packaging was yet, all the pieces were there and EASY to assemble. I primed, and painted my son's bed in dark olive and burnt orange to match his
camouflage bedding. It inspired me to paint his bedroom in the same olive and 2
tones of "sand". I then made a tent-style camouflage & khaki curtain and a
coordinating fleece throw blanket for his bed. We then framed and hung all his
military-type Gaming posters. The room looked so good, that my husband now
wants his in-home office painted some of the same colors, as he is going for a
WWII-modern style office. See what you've done? And it all started with a
simple loft bed! Thanks! Denise.
22) After searching the web far and
wide for loft bed ideas, we selected yours! This twin loft was built for my 9
yr. old niece Leslie. After years in a room by herself in her full bed, she was
needing to downsize to a bunk bed or twin to accommodate her newborn sister due
in 2 months. We decided a loft with a "fort" and "her space" underneath would
help smooth the adjustment - has it ever! She LOVES it and doesn't want to come
out of her "reading area". We built a book shelf the length of the bed
underneath. She also got a stuffed, fluffy headboard. She is in heaven with
HER new space. Thanks for the help.
23-25) My son loves his "Yankee Loft Bed".
We ordered the loft bed plans
from your site and built it together over a weekend. The loft plans were easy to
follow and a fun project to do with my seven year old. My wife tacked some outer
space material under the bed and we hung some rope lights to create a cool hang
out area. Thank you.
We love our loft. The kids really enjoy climbing up there
and reading books, building puzzles or just relaxing. It has given us so much
more floor space. We have our block area underneath. This was a great
Community Church Children's Center.
My 8 year old loves his Jungle
Bed! We added some cool doo-dads and a big desk across the bottom which we are
using for toy storage until he is a little older and will have a homework center
built right in..... We had a blast building it together, and we are so pleased
with the result. Your instructions were awesome, website is terrific and this
was a really good experience! Now Seth has a bed that he can even take to
college with him when it is time!
Just completed my second loft for my kids, they both love them! Just thought I'd
share some pictures of how I customized your plans, the larger shelving in the
floor to ceiling bookcase makes for great extra storage. I used 2 x 10’s for the
shelving assembly to make the bookcase. Thanks again!
30) Thank you so much for our loft bed. We are extremely
pleased with the way it turned out, it is PERFECT!! I needed another bed in the
bedroom, but was faced with the dilemma to keep the queen bed also. I saw
your bed on the internet and your loft bed was perfect! I was able to
build it right over the queen bed! Now my 16 year old and my 11 year old are
happy!! Thank you for all your support and continual assurance that it
would work. You're a pleasure to work with!
31-A-B) This customer won the "Flower Box Award" from ApartmentTherapy.com. She had a dog that would destroy all her plants, so
she purchased our loft and placed the flower boxes on top of the loft.
Just sending you a couple of images of how our beds turned out. They're great!
The sturdiest loft beds I've seen. You'll notice I did a few modifications.
Since the girls are only 4, I made a shorter set of "training" legs (shown), in
addition to the full-length legs. They'll get the standard legs when they're old
enough to have more common sense. We've started out with a height that
barely clears their dresser, then we can still raise the mattress another 4.5"
on these legs once they're used to not diving out of their beds. I stained the
main frame, and only painted accents, so that it will be really easy to change
colors when the girls want new colors. They're the happiest 4-year-olds in the
34) Hi. Just wanted to
send some pictures of how your loft bed was a huge part of creating my son’s
“jungle.” He loves it!! Excellent product and service. We’re talking about
ordering one for our 2-year old daughter when she’s a little older.
Just want to let you know that we finished our daughters full size loft beds and
both are very happy with the results! Thanks, Tanya.
41) Thanks for the detailed plans. Easy to follow. I added a larger desk and
angled ladder. My 10 year old loves it (and now my other kids want one!)
She's so proud of her new bed that she insisted I send you some pictures!
Thanks from Dallas!
I just wanted to let you all know that your beds are everything my daughters
wanted! They each have their own 'space' now and since, fight MUCH less! It is
so wonderful to have peace in our house again and I do believe we owe this to
your beds. They are extremely well crafted and my girls absolutely love having
the shelves as their headboard. Just though I would let you all know and say,
The loft I recently purchased for my daughters first year of college IS THE
BEST. I was a bit skeptical after ordering but after I assembled it I was very
impressed with not only the sturdiness of the loft but the overall quality as
well. My daughter loves it and is very pleased that we picked this loft over all
the others. I have some friends whose children are going to be starting college
next fall and if they are in the market for a loft I will be sending them your
way. THANKS AGAIN!!
(From a customer with a low 7' ceiling...)
Hi!! We built the queen bunk bed this past weekend in our Jellystone Park
model.. It turned out great!!..The height was perfect.. The kids have room to
sit on the top bunk and not hit their heads and there is plenty of head room on
the bottom bunk.. Our family and friends say they have never seen a queen
bunk and are very impressed with you folks.. Thank you very much!!
...It gave us extra
floor space for our kids and provided much needed storage space under ours. Our
home is 14'x65' and we have three growing weeds in our home. Plus I home
school. So, we needed space. Buying your loft beds are much less expensive
than getting another house. So, these beds were a great solution to our
problem. I am glad you make them. Thanks for all your time and have a nice
...I really like
the foam idea to fill in the space at the end. Thank you for the suggestions. I will say that my son is very
happy with his bed and my toddler is happy with his little room under the bed.
I have been meaning
to email to
tell you how delighted the kids are with their loft bed. I was very
pleased with the quality of the materials, and had I not had limited space in
which to assemble it, I believe I might have come close to your estimated time
frame (I did have to ask my husband to hold the cross pieces while I secured
them, so your suggestion of needing two people was pretty much on the money).
I enjoyed the project, though, I love doing this stuff, and the bed is quite
nice. Thank you.
I am thrilled to
have found your web site, you have been very helpful and prompt and detailed.
You have made my
child very happy, she can't wait to go to bed now, I have a hard time
getting her down from there, now she gets breakfast served in bed!!
Just wanted to tell you folks that the bed we built from your plans for my
daughter's dorm room is now the hit of the floor. We added three inches to the
height for desk clearance but other than that, we couldn't have asked for
anything simpler to build...Thanks again.
love your All-In-One Sleep & Study Loft Bed. It is much more reasonable than
the $2k loft bed from PB Teen. Thanks, Amy.
Was so glad to find
American-made, quality products. Nothing in the big-name stores can compare.
Thanks for doing what you do!
We ordered a loft for our daughter a few weeks
ago and it was such a hit that our son wants only that for Christmas! It went
together great, is very sturdy and looks fantastic. Thanks.
We recently purchased a bed for our son who is
going to be a college freshman in the fall. He is going to school locally, so we
figured we would redo his bedroom to give it the feeling of a dorm. I have to
say that I am far more impressed with the bed than I expected to be. It's
amazingly sturdy and was not that difficult to assemble. His room is not
large, so the bed has afforded him the opportunity to free up floor space for
some seating. I have already recommended the website to a few people. Great
Your loft is perfect for my son at college. There are many reasons why
we bought it from you, but the top 3 are: you customized to exactly what we
needed, you shipped it fast and it was the best price on the internet. PS. It is also as sturdy as a rock. My son loves it.
"I ordered a
loft from you guys last year for my son. My daughter cried all Christmas morning
that Santa did not bring her one so I can't disappoint her this year."
I have to say that I am very impressed with your website and especially your
. We have slanted
ceilings and were able to calculate how much headroom we would get using various
heights across different parts of the room. Very helpful and unique approach and
the loft fit perfectly. Thanks.
Very detailed order form and
. I feel well-informed and confident that I
made a good decision. The quality of information on the site was one of the
major deciding factors in selecting your product over those of competitors.
I am very pleased with your customer service and products.
Since I was making a large internet purchase, I did extensive research on
multiple companies. I took your advice of reviewing the
the other companies and was
shocked at what I found. Thanks for a great product and my kids love them.
Your loft bed is totally sturdy!
Over-engineered as my husband says, but given our rough and tumble girl, I think
its great, and we can all pile on her bed for stories too! Thanks.
I just wanted to take a minute and thank you
for both the great product and the prompt customer service! As a single mom I
don't often have a second person to assist me in putting things together. While
there were a couple of times I wished for a second pair of hands to hold
something in place, I was able to easily put the entire bed together without a
second person and it looks great! Thanks again for a customer friendly product!
tell you how much our daughter loves her new loft bed. She initially rented a
metal one (freshman mistake, but she's learning!) and she hated it. It was
so wobbly and creaked every time she moved. I sent her a link to your site,
bought it and it works great. Thank you!
"The best customer service I have received in a very long time! I had
mistakenly ordered online two desktops to go with one bed - whoever processed my
order took the time to call me, point out the possible error, and ask if I
really did want two desktops. Thank you for your attention to detail.
We just wanted to tell you that your loft plans were EXCELLENT! They were
very clear and the loft went up so easily on moving day... and my husband and I
had a lot of fun building it! Thank you for helping out these new-to-college
life parents and oh, yeah, their son as well! He really likes it and has gotten
lots of compliments. I will recommend you to all!
Your website is by far the easiest and most
informative that I have seen. I was concerned about purchasing a loft due to our
low ceilings. I love the fact that you customized it to fit our specifications
and it looks great! Thanks.
"Wonderful, exactly what I needed to
make my New York closet-sized room into a more spacious and livable space."
"We just dropped off our freshman at college and you made it so easy for us.
My husband did the necessary gluing the night before our trip so the complete
assembly would be quick the next day. He was very impressed with the quality of
the wood, the exact measurements and superior design of your loft. We will
definitely use your loft system again! We also appreciate your efforts to ship
it very quickly within our time frame. Thanks, again!" Shelby
"Thanks for the solid loft bed, it is very sturdy. We ordered it a week
early so we could have it shipped home so we could do a partial assembly.
It was a fun family project to put together and seemed to make the days before
he left a little easier. This is the first of three boys heading off to
college over the next few years. I'll be calling you again next year for another
"I did an extensive comparison between you and IKEA, and yours is higher
quality and much much studier than the IKEA loft, and the mattress fit
Please Note: A standard twin mattress is 39"
x 75" and most colleges use an extra long XL mattress which is
80". The IKEA
loft beds are designed for European mattress sizes which are a little smaller
than US sizes.
"It's hard to believe that my daughter's room is only 10 x 11! With the loft, it feels huge!"...Thanks,
"I live in a single room in my fraternity house,
it's only 10'x10' (my closet at home was bigger than
this...), your loft allows me to maximize every inch of my room".
"I just wanted to let you all know that your beds are everything my daughters
wanted! They each have their own 'space' now and since, fight MUCH less! It is
so wonderful to have peace in our house again and I do believe we owe this to
your beds. They are extremely well crafted and my girls absolutely love having
the shelves as their headboard, thanks!" ...Lori
"Your loft is perfect for my son at
college. I looked at local furniture stores for
a college loft and couldn't find anything reasonable, then I found yours. Your design is simple, customizable and best of all AFFORDABLE."
"The web site is very complete. The
information (e.g., to put a loft bed together, what one looks like when
broken down to
, the loft leg
guidelines, all the
, even what
to buy) helped
convince me that this was the right to buy from. The person who talked
with me by phone was extremely helpful and professional. Moving to college is already
stressful; thanks for making it easier."
"It was a fun family project to set up and decorate
together. My kids love
it and their friends love to come over and play underneath 'The Fort'."
"My 9 year old son LOVES his new ""
Loft Bed, and I must say that I am quite pleased, it is a sturdy piece of
furniture and EASY to assemble...The room looked so good, that my husband now
wants his in-home office painted...See what you've done! And it all
started with a simple loft bed! Thanks!" ...Denise
"I am thrilled to
have found your web site, you have been very helpful, prompt and detailed.
You have made my child very happy, she can't wait to go to bed now, I have a
hard time getting her down from there, now she gets breakfast served in bed!!!"

outer space material under the bed and we hung some rope lights to create a

"I want to say thank you for your quick response. I don't believe I ever had customer service this good before, I almost wish I
needed another bed!!! I was impressed by both the quickness of the reply
and stunned that an ACTUAL person called with a response to my email.
Thank you - I'll recommend you to anyone who asks, the service is fantastic." Sincerely, Alisa.
This is the third bed we have bought from you. The last two we alternated
between using as bunk beds and as a loft while using the space underneath as a
study. I have never been happier with a bed in my life. I liked them so much for
my girls, I've decided to get one for myself! It allows for so much extra room,
utilizing space we never knew we had! Its fun to paint and decorate the beds how
we like as well. I'm looking forward to getting my hands on the new one! Thanks!
The Gilmore Girls
WE LOVE THE BED!!! We ordered it on a Wednesday and it arrived Monday,
that was fast! It was so easy to put together and looks great! Our
son is so happy with his new bed and loves that he has a hideout underneath it.
This is a great product, sure we could have probably made it on our own from
your plans, but what a time saver it was to have all the wood pre-drilled and
cut to size. LOVE IT!!! I'm sure my son will have lots of great dreams up there!
We spent tons of money on our new house when we first moved in on new
furniture, paint, etc. but your loft bed in my son's room is still the biggest
topic of conversation and everyone wants to see it when they visit. And of
course it was one of the least expensive things we bought! Thanks, Shawn
I heard about you from a friend. We were about to buy a much more expensive
product when we went to their house and saw your loft bed in their son's room.
The quality was great, we could paint it any color we wanted, and the price was
right! Thanks, Jennifer
Your 84" length loft bed is perfect for my 6' 2" (and still growing) son.
Now his feet don't hang out over the end.
After searching for a loft bed for my son's new room for months, I selected
yours. I needed to get a sturdy bed with study area for a reasonable price. Plus
the double bookshelf headboard is a bonus for my son, who's an avid reader and
now has room for all his "stuff".
This will be our second purchase from you--now our little boy
is going to college, so his earlier double loft is being traded for a dorm loft!
Would not consider any other company than yours--the quality and ease of
construction is wonderful! Kathryn.
2 big thumbs up for your loft bed! My 11 year old daughter
could not be happier, and loves the loft bed. From my standpoint the bed shipped
fast, was easy to assemble, looks good, and is very sturdy. I would
recommend this to anyone looking for a loft bed. Thank you, Leo
I love my new high rise bed. My room size tripled since I was able to
put all my junk underneath. Thanks, Carly
I'm a college freshman, and I was researching loft beds to see if that would
be a practical solution to putting a place in my dorm for my crafts and I found
your website. I just wanted to say that it is one of the most thorough,
detailed, helpful websites for any product that I've seen. I realize that may be
a strange thing to email you just to say, but it seriously is very impressive
and I wanted to applaud you on it. Many companies don't give such attention to
detail and so their websites can be a maze to try and find any information.
Looking at your website, I couldn't think of a single question I could ever
possibly have to which it would be difficult to find an answer. Perhaps it's
just me, but when the website of a business is a hassle to navigate and overall
confusing, it makes me much less apt to purchase their product. Your website was
the exact opposite. Thank you for making your website one that is effective at
communicating everything the customer needs and wants to know in an
attractive-but-not-flashy way. Thanks, Alicia
