H4H Fabrication Details
Bed-side shelving and fit-out
Note: The dimensions detailed given below are down to the millimetre, but the required accuracy is only within 3-4mms.
However, have the timber cut as accurately as possible.
The heights given here for positioning battens, hinges and shelving on both side walls is measured from the bottom of the base-plate, which makes contact with the floor frame (not the floor surface).
Since the width and thicknesses of shelving timbers can vary, remember to check, and allow for the fold-up heights of everything hinged onto the wall, including the thickness of the timber.
The bed hinges onto Studs 2, 3 and 5 at a height of 50 cms (the top surface of the bed, and also the hinge point.
The Upper Shelf:
While this is just a normal shelf made from 200x15 dressed pine, it should also be able to carry the weight of a cradle, or possibly even a small child's bunk bed.
Both the Bed and the upper-shelf need 1 metre long dressed supporting battens on the front panel between the corner and the door-frame.
Also need 5mm drill holes along front of shelving above the bed where eye-bolts and other fixings can be added to secure an above-bed bunk/cradle for children
