Tiny House Loft with Bedroom, Guest Bed, Storage and Shelving

Plans for a tiny home loft with decrease bed room, storage drawers, and hidden couch that converts to a visitor mattress.

I believe what I really like most about this loft space within the tiny home is that it’s so easy and doesn’t really feel cluttered or sophisticated – but it does so many issues!

It is a sofa.  A ladder.  A shelving show wall.  It is an actual visitor mattress.  And a bed room encloure.  It is also a queen mattress.  And a dresser.  And a shoe storage system.  There’s hidden storage.  And naturally, it is a loft.

We put a ton of thought into every board on this loft mattress system – did you discover that the wall framing turns into shelving?  That the mattress assist system is a dresser?  That the loft flooring is simply 1-1/2″ thick the place you want headroom?  It is a tiny home – you possibly can’t afford to waste area or supplies (that take up area and value weight).

Hope you benefit from the plans following (if that is the homepage click on READ MORE beneath), and in case you do construct, please share, would like to see how this technique works out for you.

Comfortable Constructing!

Step 1:

Construct the principle wall system. One of the simplest ways to connect into the 4×4 posts is with a Kreg Jig, hiding pocket holes on underside.

Step 2 Directions:

Subsequent, construct the 2×4 mattress assist. We made ours utilizing the self tapping wooden screws (2-3/4″ size however comparable lengths would work simply superb). Be sure this space may be very sq.. Then connect the 2 items to the partitions within the room and collectively utilizing the 2-3/4″ screws. You will have longer lag screws to connect 4x4s to the wall.

Step Three Directions:

Use a stage to connect wall cleats to studs within the wall utilizing the 2-3/4″ screws.

Step 5 Directions:

The one factor I might change on this loft mattress system is the ladder. There are two issues I didn’t like about how we did ours – 1. Iron pipe solely comes threaded in sure lengths. So we needed to reduce iron pipe and weld to becoming to get the widths to work out excellent. 2. With the span in our pipes, the pipes will sag when heavier folks climb the ladder. So I counsel and enchancment to my unique design by including 2×4 blocking contained in the framing, spaced to suit your iron pipe fittings. This may clear up the 2 points now we have.

Step 6 Directions:

I made a decision to make use of the 2x8s to assist the mattress as a result of it creates a pleasant sized cavity for drawers. 2×4 or 2×6 framing would have been superb too in case you are not doing the drawers. If doing drawers take further care to verify the boards are hooked up sq. so you do not have a cockeyed drawer that does not slide proper.

Step 7 Directions:

We used leftover 1×6 tongue and groove from the wall paneling to cowl the again of the “wall” however any materials will do – beadboard, paneling, plywood – your alternative. It is good that this space is lower than a full sheet of plywood. Simply reduce and connect with nails and glue.

Step Eight Directions:

We used 2×6 tongue and groove for the upstairs loft. You could possibly most likely get away with 1x materials, however undecided if I might suggest it with the span over the doorway being so near 36″. Another choice is 3/4″ plywood, then high with 3/4″ hardwood flooring working the wrong way.

Step 9 Directions:

Drawers ought to at all times be constructed to suit openings and drawer slides. The image reveals the proper state of affairs. For the shoe tilt out drawers I simply used 1x3s to field out an space, and scrap 1/4″ plywood on the again, all hooked up to the door (see subsequent step).

Step 10 Directions:

Connect drawer faces and doorways. There needs to be an 1/8″ hole on all sides of the doorways/drawers when put in correctly.

Step 11:

For the mattress slats, I used a full size board (entrance edge painted) for the primary slat, then burned up any 3/4″ materials for the remaining slats, splicing joints over the 2×8 framing.

Step 12:

I hinged a bit of three/4″ plywood over the opening within the entrance. We reduce a circle out within the center to behave as a deal with.

Step 13:

Retailer purchased black iron pipe is a simple railing (although not code authorized so please be cheap and secure right here) and ladder.
