$300 Built-In Trundle Bed and Cabinets

3 Materials
2 Days

Want to get the most amount of storage in a tiny bedroom? Learn how to make the built-in trundle bed and cabinets just like the ones we put in the modern farmhouse guest house. One of the cabinets is for the kitchenette and the other will house the composting toilet like you'd find in a tiny house. We built the bed and both of the cabinets for less than $300.

If you've been following along on our journey as we transformed our garden shed into a bedroom for my step-daughter / guest cottage, you may remember what we started with. First, we had to change the door to open the other way.

Suggested materials:

  • Hammer
  • Nails
