Bunk bed pods can be built quickly if you have a plan and stick to it. It should not take longer than 30 minutes to build bunk beds if you have a good helper and just a little longer if you do not have any help. Even bunk beds can be built quickly, if done properly, they can last up to 10 years. The materials and tools needed to quickly build bunk beds available at home improvement stores.
Buy lumber and nails required to construct bunk beds. Make sure to buy the 16 sections of 4 by 4 and two pieces of plywood. Construction legs first. Take two 4 by 4s and nail them together to create a 4 by eighth. You can perform this stacking two 4 by 4s directly on top of each other and nailing them together. Use at least one spike in the top, middle and bottom of the adjacent 4 by 4s. Then, repeat this step four times to quickly do four sets of legs. The legs should be 6 feet tall.
Take two of the legs and stand them about 6 feet apart. To join the two legs with another 4 by 4 by nailing the legs at approximately 24 inches from the ground. The nails should be positioned so that they go through the four by four and into the bone. Also use more nails in all places where the legs contact with the 4 by 4 to ensure stability. Repeat this step again by nailing a 4 by 4 in the legs about 60 inches from the ground. Take the other two legs and repeat the same steps.
