Full Over Full Bunk Beds – Stacking two full-size beds one above the other, better known as “full-on-full” bunk beds, is becoming more and more popular. Full-size mattresses typically measure 54 x 75 inches (137 x 190 cm), although some manufacturers carve their mattresses a little differently. There are plans available for full bunk beds more fully, but you probably will not find any free plans on the web. Fortunately, it is not difficult to make your own plans.
Because full over full bunk beds are not much larger than twin beds, it’s a fairly simple matter of using double bunk plans and resizing them using plans for a full-size or double. Do you want a single unit with two beds, or do you want beds that can be separated? The first is a simple construction project, but the latter requires some additional thought. The key is the construction of two headers and two stirrups that can be used in any combination. The simplest way to achieve this is to use commercial hardware to connect the rails to the end pieces.
You will also need to center and drill holes of eight 1/2 inch – one on the top of the corner posts of each headboard, and one on the bottom of the foot posts corner posts. After mounting the lower bed with the two headers and the top bunk with the two stirrups; Inserting the 1/2 inch diameter dowels into these holes will hold the beds in place. Headspace is also an important consideration. You should try to leave at least two feet of headspace. Platform beds as the full over full bunk beds frame make it easier to create this bed space using box springs.
