Can I disassemble the house bed to move it?

Yes! If you apply wood glue to *only* the joints for the headboard and footboard sections, you’ll be able to remove the screws connecting the bed rails.

Finishing the DIY House Bed Frame

Once you finished building the twin house bed frame, remove any excess glue, apply wood filler to nail holes, cracks and blemishes and allow to dry.
