I’m so excited to share these photos with y’all! When I found out that I was pregnant with Avery I knew that I wanted to her to have her own nursery. I’m all about getting babies on schedules and I assumed it would be much easier to do that if she had her own room. So, I had the twins join Savannah in her room and asked my father-in-law to build a custom triple bunk bed! He is a talented carpenter by hobby! I scoured Pinterest for ideas of layouts for a bunkbed and wasn’t able to find anything in particular that I loved. I found 3 bunk beds that each had elements I wanted to combine to make that perfect triple bunk bed for our family.
My father-in-law custom built this bed and it was PERFECT! Funny-but-not-so-funny story… The 1st night the kids slept in the bed, my oldest daughter Savannah saw her older cousin scale down the outside of the bunk bed down to the floor. Well, Savannah wanted to show her beloved cousin a “SUPER JUMP!” And since I hadn’t yet thought to set up some ground rules for the bunk bed, Savannah JUMPED from the top bunk to the floor. She broke her arm. Since then, ground rules were discussed and we haven’t had any injuries since. <wink wink> Knock on wood!
I HAD to take our triple bunk bed with us to new house! The only downside was the ceilings were sloped in our new house and my father-in-law and hubby had to get creative in order to keep the bed. This was the only room the bunkbed would fit, too. I decided to let Ethan have his own room while the 2 girl’s would share a room. These kiddos can’t be separated too far from each other, they share a jack-and-jill bathroom. Close enough to party all night long ;-).
Here’s a few phone pictures from the weekend these boys customized the bunk beds to fit our new house.
The kids LOVE obviously this beautiful bed built for them by their grandad. It’s definitely something I’ll keep forever. xo

This allows your kids to make their own beds since no tucking or folding is required. I couldn’t imagine having any other bedding for our kids.

I love this bed set!!! roughly how much would this cost in supplies do you think?
Whoever made the triple bunk bed for you do they sell them? I heave 4 babies all 14mo apart and this would be a lifesaver.
Hey Kimber! Holy moly, you and your 4 babes! Unfortunately my FIL doesn’t sell bunk beds… But I’ve seen a lot of DIY tutorials using beds from IKEA to build a triple!
❤ I love this ! All bedroom is perfect x
Awww, thanks Gosia! Ethan loves his man-cave haha.
Just wondering do you have plans for this bed.
Hi! About to start a project somewhat like this. We just have 8 foot ceilings on our second floor. Is that okay?
