About the Plan

Construction Truck Bed PLANS (for a TWIN mattress) – Wheel Loader/Front Loader Model – perfect for a toddler construction themed room! Help your little boy or girl transition from the crib into a bed he or she will actually enjoy sleeping in. They’ll love it!

This digital document is a design guide with step-by-step instructions to create the “Construction Truck Bed: Wheel Loader / Front Loader Model.”
Included are a Bill of Materials, exact dimensions for the components, a step-by-step guide for assembling the bed, a recommended cutting guide, and lots of visual aids to help along the way.

Designed to support a twin size mattress (39”x75”).

Overall dimensions of the fully assembled bed: 61” x 98” x 61” (W x L x H).

Depending on your local pricing, all materials necessary to build the bed will be about $200.

If you are handy (or know someone that is) this is the design guide for you. The bed is designed to be made completely out of wood (that you can buy at a local store) and no specialty tools are required. If you can measure and cut 2×4’s and work a power drill, you can build this bed.

This bed was designed to help my son transition from his crib into his big boy room (just before his little brother arrived).
It worked like a charm for us and I hope it does for you too.

Some other features of the bed to consider:
– modular and forgiving design that can be built separately and assembled in the room
– easy to access sheets for frequent changing (as a parent, I know that’s important)
– room for storage underneath bed frame
– can be converted into a regular bed easily (when the time comes)
– storage for books and toys on shelves
– frame is compatible with Castle Bed and Tractor Bed
– affordable materials, fun to build and personalize and inspire your kid!
