Its known that dorm rooms are practically jail cells. I have my own "cell", which helps. But I'm thinking this semester I would create a loft for my bed. I could buy one but I really dont have the money.

MY PLAN
First buy PVC pipes..

I have bed risers (1/2ft)... where I could put the PVC's connecting the bed to the risers..and connect these posts I make to a PVC frame that would go under the bed...

What do you think...? Better ideas?

As the mom of 3 daughter's, 2 of which are in college.....be careful building a loft!

The college my eldest daughter attends provides lofts when requested. (That is very nice.)

The college my second daughter attends, has very specific plans for lofts that are allowed in the dorms and they had to be approved by the RA. (I'm sure there must be some sort of liability issue in dorms?) Plans for the lofts were available on their web-site. We built this daughter's loft.

So, you should check with your school before you go any further. It'd really stink to buy all the materials and build one only to find you have to take it down.

As for the youngest daughter still at home, we built her a "deluxe" loft for her bedroom at home. It has book shelves built in and a desk underneath. Her room is very small and this gave her so much more space.

Good luck with whatever you decide to do!

Thanks for your concern!
However, My college isn't very strict when it comes to what you can and cant have. They are more concerned with any damages done with the walls and such.

heh. I didn't mean it in a bad way! You had a completely valid point. I know many schools that are much more strict than mine. Whats wrong with being such a mom? I love my mom. :]

I understand you made you have loft experience should I say? Have any cheap/easy ideas??
