The barnwood perpendicular bunk bed is a combination of a barnwood loft and a Little Jack bed with a low profile footboard. They are not connected to each other. The perpendicular bunk bed is a functional design to accommodate multiple people. The barnwood loft has ladders on both ends. Our barnwood collection is made of rough sawn pine to replicate the look of barnwood. We recommend a 9-10″ thick mattress for the loft.
