These are the plans for our super simple daybed. It’s a lighter, more airy take on Donald Judd’s famous daybed design.
It measures 30 inches deep by 77 inches long and is about 33 inches tall. The lumber costs about $400 (with 2022 lumber prices.)
It’s designed around traditional Japanese shikibuton floor mattress, but you can use any cushions you prefer.
–This was designed as a DIY build and can be built with minimal tools. However the detailed instructions give multiple options for those who have more talent and tools.
–Included in this package are detailed digital 3D plans, a complete materials list with links to products, 50 photos and drawings, and over 40 pages of step-by-step instruction with accompanying photos — all the information needed to build your own cozy escape.
–Package includes a 3D Sketchup model. Sketchup is a CAD program that allows you to construct in 3D, explore the build, examine all the details of joinery and framing, modify the design, and hide layers. Measurements can be taken and screenshots can be printed. Even if you don’t intend to build things exactly shown this is a great starting point to adapt it to your needs. Sketchup is available in paid premium versions (with free trials), and as an always-free web app, so there is no added cost to using this model.
