I know my kids would have had a hay day with that. Great use of space too. Good job!

Very neat design. I don’t have much experience with building furniture so am wondering how the top two beds are held in place (in particular the top)?

- BB1

All of the bunks are bolted to the studs in the walls. The weight of the top two bunks is held primarily by the pipe ladder, and, in the case of the top bunk, the pipe support at the far left. The pipes alone were sufficient to make the beds usable for about 5 months while I finished building the shelves, which also provide some support, since they are screwed to the bunks.

All that to say, the bunks can all hold me (6’4”, 220lbs) and two of my kids, for a total of just over 300 lbs.

It’s a nice practical design and you did a fine job on it.

nice work,
although I am now a little too old for it I still smile as it would be a monkeys paradise for myself and my brothers in our day!!...some 45 to 50 years earlier!... I am off to check out your dining room table now.
Congratulations on the award, oh and by the way when your not too busy enjoying life and building stuff a bit of housekeeping on your profile may be in order some time, I always enjoy snooping around to see where craftsman live and work and its a bit on the bland side.
and dont hit me I am only 5’ 9”

Keep up the good work!

-- Regards Robert
