Double sleeper Carlota: build your own high sleeper!

With this high sleeper you make optimal use of a small space. The double bed is largely out of sight and underneath it creates a cozy corner to sit or store things. The stairs to the bed is at the same time a wall cabinet.. or the cabinet is a staircase at the same time, it’s just how you look at it. By the way, the high sleeper can also be made without this staircase/cabinet.
On the two sides next to the bed is a generous space with a smart sliding board for your alarm clock and all the other things you like to have at hand.

This high sleeper looks light and airy because it is hung on both sides of the wall. With an ordinary concrete or brick wall this is no problem at all. But, it can be mounted to a drywall as well, if you use the wall studs. In case you don’t trust your walls: the plan also includes a variant with support of two additional pillars.

Due to the suspension on the wall, the construction of this bed is fairly simple, so that even relatively little material is needed. You can build this high sleeper of any kind of sheet material. Underlayment is a good budget choice and has a warm, cozy look. MDF is also possible: this is even cheaper and ideal if you want to paint or spray the bed in a covering color.

To cut the panels, we recommend the use of a plate saw/circular saw. You can also have your wood supplier do this. Look, to get an idea about the availability and cost of sheet material, sawing and delivery also buy on our furniture maker tip Sheet material

The design

With this design, we have tried to reduce material use to save costs. The result is a smart and practical high sleeper that looks spacious and also creates visual space. In this high sleeper, we have taken into account a number of specific things:

We pay a lot of attention to keeping screw joints out of sight as much as possible. Although almost all joints are screwed, few screws are in sight. Actually only some of the beam construction. If you want to paint the furniture in a covering color, you can do enough to get rid of screw joints neatly using filler. Our furniture makers’ tips describe how to do this. There is no screw visible on the entire box/staircase.

Then we always try to get the furniture from standard size sheet material as efficiently as possible. This high sleeper requires 5 standard plates (244 x 122 cm). A significant part of this is in the stairs/cabinet: it is double-executed for the look and the sturdiness.

Finally, the design is tailored to the possibilities and limitations of the DIY and his/her tools. If you have a handsaw (sometimes jigsaw) and drill and can handle it, you can make all our furniture, so to speak. If you have professional tools, it only gets easier.

… Customize

As you may have seen from the photos of other made furniture, it is very easy to make changes to the dimensions and/or design yourself. The clear saw list and building drawings will automatically give you the confidence to do so. This piece of furniture is adapted to a room of about 280 cm high. This allows you to sit on and under the bed. If you have more space in height, you can make the bed higher.


The work drawings pack / the building drawing

The work drawings package consists of a well-crafted PDF brochure of 20 pages in A4 format. At the start you will find the list of necessities such as the wood (sheet material) and screws (size and number), glue and any other parts. It also shows what tools you need, and a cutting list with the sizes of the parts of the furniture to be cut. There is also a cutting plan, which shows the most optimal way to cut the individual pieces from standard sized boards..

Furthermore, the furniture drawing contains a number of applicable furniture making tips on material selection, sawing, screwing, adhesives, sanding and lacquering, etc.
Finally, in a roadmap, the manual for the assembly of the furniture follows, with clear drawings and clear explanations.

    Hij staat! Al lijkt op het eerste oog niet veel op de hoogslaper van de tekening, het is toch echt de carlota! Ik heb tijdens het bouwen heel veel plezier gehad van de tekening, zaaglijst, tips en aanwijzingen, hierdoor was het bed goed te bouwen! Ik heb alles van berken multiplex en vuren gedaan, meeste van het hout komt bij PontMeyer vandaan, alles kan hier op maat gezaagd worden, voor zagen betaal je niet! Heb ervoor gekozen om het hout met bijenwas te behandelen na het schuren. Dit zorgde ervoor dat het hout al enigzins plakte toen ik de balken en ombouw op de vloer in elkaar zette.
    Helaas woon ik in een oud en in mijn geval schots en scheef huis, hierdoor moest er nog wat bijgezaagd worden toen het bed de lucht in ging om het waterpas en passend te maken.
    Omdat het bed in een nis is gebouwd heeft hij twee staanders en maar 1 bak naast het matras. Om spullen makkelijk in het bed te kunnen zetten heb ik in de ombouw een inkeping gemaakt.

    Ben heel blij met het resultaat, dankzij de tekening was het ontzettend goed te doen, heel blij dat ik deze heb gekocht!!!

    Nou het is aardig druk geweest de laatste periode maar ik had je de foto’s nog beloofd dus bij deze in de bijlage van deze mail. Het is vrij lastig foto’s maken ivm de beperkte ruimte maar mocht je nog iets anders nodig hebben dan hoor ik het graag. Hij is zoals we eerder hebben besproken niet helemaal exact volgens tekening echter heb ik nu de kast van de andere tekening gecombineerd. Ik heb trouwens ook een review geschreven op google:

    ‘Ik heb via Neo-EKo een tekening gekocht voor een 2 persoons hoogslaper. Het was een van mijn eerste projecten en heb er ook aardig wat adviezen bij nodig gehad. Bij elke mail die ik heb gestuurd werd er netjes gereageerd en zelfs nog even gebeld om telefonisch te helpen. Zeer uitgebreide werktekeningen met duidelijke en goed te volgen instructies!’

    Rob (meubelwerktekening): Dank je wel Thijs. Fijn dat je onze werktekeningen en adviezen hebt gewaardeerd! Heel veel plezier met de zelf gebouwde hoogslaper ‘Carlota’
