DIY.  You want to have some satisfaction and take pride in building the murphy bed yourself?  We offer 3 options. 

 

Kit only: A DIY kit with the mechanism and mounting hardware, plans, and video.  You supply the wood and build it yourself.

 

Kit + Pre-Cut Boards: is we take the mechanism kit, plans, and video and give you a BIG head start.  We pre-cut all parts, Drill most of the critical holes for the mechanism, and let build it.  NOTE: You do need minor woodworking skills.  It is a little harder then putting together Ikea style furniture (your building this) See below for more info.


Completed bed but Unfinished: Do you love getting your hands a little dirty and putting the finish on your furniture?  Then this option is for you.  Save $240 off any of our murphy beds and stain and clear coat it yourself. This is off any of our completed beds and any style (not included the pre-cut boards as they are already unfinished.  Need pointers on what to use, just ask. More info below. More info.

What you get! +

 

Labor already completed for you on the Kit + Pre-Cut Boards!

   Cut and rip 32 pieces

   Edge band 16 edges

   Assemble inner frame, just the horizontal pieces into a "L" shape (A)

   *Drill 5/8 Hole and 3-1/4 hole in each side rail

   **Cut a clean square cut-out for the legs assemble to pass ( I do it with a jig so that it is clean and straight)

   *Drill 2-5/8" holes, 3-1/4" holes, 1-3/8" hole in verticals (I also add biscuit slots to hold headboard, not in original instructions)

   *Cut biscuit slots and pocket holes in headboard (this is not in original instructions, but added it to make it easier to assemble)

This labor could take the better part of a weekend (15-20 hours) for a first time builder and all those holes must be accurate. 

 

Since we are totally custom, next step is to confirm the price with shipping.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

How does the free plan deal work? Send us your email and contact info and we will email you a PDF version of the plans. We are sure you'll want to by the hardware from us, we are willing to send out the plans for free.  Take you time and look them over to see if it is something you are comfortable with.  If not then you loose nothing.  If it is something you can think you can do order the mechanism and will send you out a complete package including a hard copy of the plans. chris@wwbeds.com

 

How much woodworking skills do I need? Not much for the alpine.  For the most part if you know how to work saws and drills and read a tape measure, you can build this.  There is a DVD to help you along the way and if you need further help, I can always be contacted.  I've built hundreds of these.  chris@wwbeds.com

 

Can I build any other styles besides the Alpine? Yes,  The instructions are for the Alpine, but the main difference in each style is  the face panel.  Some style just require adding some molding to that panel, some require that it be replaced with something different.  I can hand write some instruction modifications if you'd like to build other versions.  BONUS OFFER: As a bonus I am sending a supplement to build our Hudson Bay. (Make sure you ask for it when ordering)

 

What if I need help during the building process? My name is Chris and I am the building and designer of most of the beds you see.  If you have any questions contact me chris@wwbeds.com  or 501-753-9699.

 

What sizes does the kit build? You can build twin, full, or queen in both the vertical and horizontal directions.  I will need to know at the time of ordering what size and direction of bed you'd like.

 

After I buy the mechanism can I upgrade to the pre-cut? Yes, if you get to the point that you don't have the time to build it from scratch, you can still purchase pre-cut version without the mechanism.  You can even purchase one of our completed units and we'll give you a credit for the entire price of the mechanism including shipping.

 

Do you a sample video?  Yes, a 10 minuet segment of the video can be view at Murphy Video site.  If you'd like to watch the entire video before purchasing the entire kit, a full length DVD can be purchased.  The sale price will be deducted from the kit price when you decide on the order. (Click here for more information)

 

I can't get the video link to work?  The most common problem with viewing the video is your flash player isn't up-to-date. Don't worry, we send a DVD out with the kits.

 

There are so many piece to that pre-cut, how will I ever keep them straight? We individually lable each piece and hardware pack so that there are no confusion during the building process.
