Custom Loft Bed

Leg Kit: The most time consuming and difficult part of building the loft yourself is cutting notches into the legs (corner posts). For the DIY college student or customer who wants to build a basic loft or high rise but doesn't have the time, tools or space for cutting the notches into the legs, we also have Leg Kits available.

The Leg Kit includes a hard copy of the Loft Plans, the Hardware Kit and 4 legs (corner posts) in either 39" (High Rise Platform Bed), 72" (Standard Height), 84" (Extra Tall) or 96" (Super Tall) leg height. To complete the loft you need to supply the remaining lumber for the front/back rails (2x6's, 2x2's), ladder rungs (2x4's), bed slats (2x4's) and safety rails (1x4). The 96" Super Tall Legs price includes the FedEx "Oversize" charge.

When ordering the Leg Kit, you may also select the Leg Top Design which are: (4) Square Top (default), (2) Round Top & (2) Square Top (for use with the double bookshelf headboard), or (4) Round Top. Leg Kits ship out in 2 - 3 business days and once shipped will arrive in 1 to 5 business days. The Leg Kits go out by FedEx Ground and are only available to the contiguous US.

Use our Height Calculator to determine what leg height you need and how much space you will get above and underneath based on your specifications.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a Discount for Purchasing a Complete Loft Bed Kit: Yes. If for any reason after purchasing you decide you would rather have purchased our complete Loft Bed Kit instead, or would like to purchase the remaining pieces from us, the full payment may be credited toward purchasing any of our Loft Bed Kits.

Can I also order some accessory items now? Yes. You may order any accessory items, they are listed on this page below the plans.

Can I buy the remaining lumber pieces from you later on? Yes. If for any reason after purchasing the Loft Bed Plans, Hardware Kit or Leg Kit, you decide you would have rather bought the entire bed kit, your original purchase will be credited toward buying a complete kit.

I am having a hard time finding good quality lumber, what kind of lumber do you use? We understand that it is very difficult to find nice straight boards from home improvement stores. Most lumber yards cary construction grade and not furniture grade lumber. You need to sort through many boards just to find a few nice pieces. For your safety be very careful when sorting through a pile of lumber as it can easily fall down and never let children be around piles of stacked lumber. We use a special grade of Kiln-Dried Heat Treated Western Spruce from the Pacific Northwest whick is that is specifically milled for us. Since Western Spruce grows in a cooler climate, it stays straighter and has fewer knots better than other wood species. typically not available from most lumber yards or home improvement stores.

It has four pieces of 1/8" MDF that covers the entire mattress area. It is attached to the top of the Mattress Foundation Bed Slats. This may be needed if your mattress manufacturer requires you to have a box spring, bunkie board or a totally flat solid platform surface to keep the mattress warranty active. This may also be used if you don't want to see the bottom of the upper mattress when sitting or sleeping underneath or if you want a solid separator between the top and bottom mattresses.
