More see Stairway Loft Bed at poggyskid.com
This is a loft that was completed in February 2010. Lately the stairs on the bunk and loft beds have been very popular in the imported kids market. I had a customer that want me to build a custom one. They couldn’t find the stair loft with a desk, chest, and bookcase. So this is what I came up with.
It is made from Red Oak with a Gun Stock stain from Minwax. It is finished with two coat of Pre-catalyzed lacquer. The finished size is 101”w x 42”d x 64”h.
The feature that I like is the drawers under the stairs. Why waste space. If it is like my kids room you can never have enough drawer space. Where do they get all those cloths? Another feature the customer requested was a keyboard tray that had sides so it could be used as a pencil drawer. Also to keep the little one off the very top, I cut a 1/4” groove at the top stairs to where a panel can be inserted and block off the upper section.
