Item NaNoed: Tuffing bunk bed
First assemble the bunk bed omitting one of the lower bunk long horizontal beams.
For the upper bunk, there are 7 bed slats and netting. I inserted only the 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th slat into the netting and attached it to the upper bunk with screws as per the instructions.
Then, I fixed the 4th slat underneath the netting. This will be used to tuck the hammock underneath the bed when not in use.
As there is no lower bunk, there will be an extra netting from the lower bunk bed base which I used for the hammock. Insert a slat into end of the net, then affix it to the 2nd slat place of the upper bunk, underneath the netting of the upper bunk.
Repeat with the other end of the net, affixing it to the 6th slat place of the upper bunk.
Voila! You’re done!
As a note, my husband of 90kg has sat in it without breaking anything. Also, with a human weight in the hammock, it will sag down until about 10-15 cm above the floor, so it is super safe.
