This Triple Bunk Bed, based on the Classic Bunk Beds, uses a staggered design to fit under common 8' ceilings while maintaining head room. If you have Sketchup installed, you can open the file and pull the pieces apart, rotate around, zoom in, and even modify it for your needs.
On the verticals, make marks, from the top down, at 12?”, 25?”, and 38?”, with two more on the full height vertical at 51”, and 63?”. These cross sections each have one rail that is installed flat, that will end up being one of the mattress supports. The hanging cross section should have a 1” hole drilled just below the top safety rail (4?” from the top), where the bolt will go that connects the main pieces together. On the full height verticals, make marks, from the top down, at 12?”, 25?”, 38?”, 51”, and 63?”. On the inside vertical, which goes next to the ladder, a 1” hole similar to the hanging cross piece is needed, along with the filler piece being attached to the inside rail 3?” below the top, using screws and glue. For all of the other filler pieces, 1?” nails with glue can be used in place of screws to make assembly a little faster, since these pieces will not be subject to lateral stress. Also attach 2?” inch sections of 1?4 to the inside verticals as shown to align with the 2?3 supports. Clamp 2 sections at a time together in their final position, and drill through both sections at once.
The slats for each bunk should be connected together in two groups, since the top bunks have a built-in slat in the middle. Or, as an alternative to cloth, use 2 extra 1x strips about 32” long for each half, perpendicular to the slats, and screw into the slats (these 1x’s will need to be on the bottom of the slats when in use). It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. I will definitely build two of these after I get done with the triple pedestial farmhouse table and benches. I'm almost ready to assemble this, but I'm a little overwhelmed with the assembly instructions. I did, but this project has many more pieces than that plan, and I had difficulty extrapolating the instructions to fit this plan.
Hi, you may have guessed from the lack of real pictures that I posted this plan without having built one--I admit I was a little concerned it would be too hard to assemble. I did get it finished last week, but I've had such a difficult time photographing it because it's quite large and my boys' room is quite small (which is why we needed it!) I love it - but I did definitely have some issues with the directions.

Cut the guard rails out of 1×4 lumber, making sure you pay attention to the instructions described in the plans.
Smart Tip: Clean the residues with a dry cloth, before staining the bunk bed with the appropriate products for your tastes and needs. Thank you for reading our article about triple bunk bed plans and we recommend you to check out the rest of our home improvement projects. She hopes to be someone who acts justly, loves kindness and walks humbly before God (Micah 6:8). A 2?” piece of 1?4 should be glued and screwed into the vertical directly below the flat cross piece on each side for extra support. This is to allow the nut on the assembly bolt to be countersunk to keep it safely away from the person in the top bunk. All nails and screws should go through the filler into the vertical to keep the heads hidden.
There is a second vertical on the hanging support that goes inside the rail, which should be attached last. The slat supports are the only place that support the weight of the occupants with only screws and glue, without the physical support of boards directly below the support pieces.
Bolts holes should be drilled about 1” below each bed rail, plus one below the top safety rail. Although the slats could be screwed to the slat supports after assembly, that would eliminate the ability to easily disassemble the bed.
Lay a yard of cloth across 5 slats, properly spaced (about 3?” between them) and staple to the slats. I feel like a lot of this plan was left to general knowledge or something that I obviously don't have. I'm guessing you would start with the double end piece and one side piece, and sort of work diagonally from there, but it sounds like you got past that. It could've been as simple as the thickness of my wood being slightly different or something, but I'll get a brag post up with details here shortly.

Nevertheless, you could save some money if you purchase lumber with knots, which could even enhance the look of project, giving it a rustic appearance.

In addition, we recommend you to pre-drill the lumber, otherwise the wood might easily split.
Attach the 2×2 legs to the bed frames, making sure the corners are square and the frames are perfectly horizontal. Therefore, you need fill all the holes with a good filler and let the compound to dry out properly, before sanding the wooden surface with 120-grit sandpaper. The upper filler pieces, which are attached to the outside verticals in most places, are attached to these verticals as shown, 3?” from the top.
This inside vertical can be attached with finish nails and glue rather than screws, since the screw heads would remain visible, and this piece is less structurally critical.
Use at least 3 screws on the short pieces, 6 on the medium length, and 8 on the long pieces.
By simply be attaching the slats to each other, it will maintain spacing and still be easy to remove. Once all the pieces were done I stood around with several other people and we all held pieces up so we could get an idea of what we were doing before we started.

Although there are many designs you could choose from, in this article we will show you all you have to know about making a classic bulk bed out of common materials. Select the slats with great attention, checking if they are in a good condition (the lumber has to be straight and without chips, dents or cracks).
Add glue to the joints, if you want to enhance their bond. Smooth the cut edges with fine grit sandpaper and remove the residues using a vacuum cleaner.
Ask a couple of friends to assist you while assembling the triple bunk bed, as you need someone to hold the components into place while you insert the galvanized screws.
The top of the flat rail will be ?” lower than the matching cross rail (comparing to the end pieces).
That is 4 bolts each in the 3 full height verticals (2 cross sections and the ladder overlap), and 3 bolts each in the 2 short verticals. Make sure you take a look over the related plans to get an idea about what you can build for your home.
The bolt will grab the surface of the filler piece when assembled, so this piece must be secured to the vertical with both screws and glue.
