Does anyone know the coroplast measurements for a 1 x 2 loft? I still haven't made one and would appreciate help with the math! :)

You would need an 18 inches x 24 inches piece - that's for a 1x2 tray with 4" sides all around.

cavy-cool-crazy, I don't know where you got those measurements, but I sure hope they weren't used.

I don't understand. We are talking about the Coroplast here, aren't we? For a loft?

Yeah, the cubes are 14 inch by 14 inches. So, the correct measurements would be 36 length by 22 width for a 2x1 loft and having the coroplast be four inches on each side.

Yes...that's what I meant! Sorry if there were any misunderstandings - I miscalculated and forgot that 2 fourteens are 28! Thanks for correcting me, dagwell!

Just wondering why a six inch border isn't used on a loft? Do people not usually put bedding upstairs-just fleece maybe? Thanks for your help. I did much better in English! :)

No reason - CCC just decided to have 4" sides! You can have whatever you want

Also, it's really best to measure really well on your loft first, because not everyone does them the same way. It can make a difference on whether or not you use connectors, whether you want the front lip lower than the back, etc.

Yeah, that's true - When I'm going to build my loft (grr, nobodies ordered my bed so I can't make the new cage any time soon), I'm cutting the grids in half so the sides will be 7" high. So, I'll make the coroplast about 3" high.
