Lofts (Cross-posted on Facebook)

Okay, I know the generic answer to the "how do I loft my bed" question: you build one. I know that Wake doesn't supply any either, they supply that dumb build it yourself pamphlet. Does anybody have any other ideas given that nobody in my family is a carpenter?

And for those that are already attending Wake, what is the best configuration for a room? Lshaped? Bunked?

Thanks, Lo

    I was defeated by the pamphlet :(.

    I've heard that there are some lofts available for purchase at various places online, but I'm not sure that it'd be a good idea to buy them until you can get in your room and make the necessary measurements.

    As for the best configuration for rooms, it really depends on the room. Some rooms, having the beds bunked will definitely be the best way to go. In other rooms, other configurations will probably work.

    I don't get the obsession with lofting.

    Lofting gives you more storage space ... under the bed.

    If you want a loft bed and do not want to make it, check out this website:
