I had some help from my Dad on this one. It was nice to have some father/son time. Before we started he asked me if I had any plans or directions, I told him they were all in my head. But when it was done the picture in my head didn’t look like a barn. LOL. I saw a picture of a $1500 bed online that looked something like this but I can guantee it was no where near as strong as this one and I paid less than half. I can jump up and down and it doesn’t budge. My daughter Loves it. She has a computer on one side and a drawing table on the other. I finished off the table tops with an 1/8” glaze so they can be as rough as they want to be with it. The stairs on the left are also drawers and the bottom two are 33” deep. She found out that she can fit in one. I was trying to keep my cuts down so I made it a full sheet of plywood wide. Thats why you see the storage on the right side inside the bed. Its a massive bed but it comes apart into 5 seperate parts. The stairs are not even attached then the bed, Legs, and roof are seperate. Being in the Military I have to move a lot so I needed to be able to break it down. Thats another reason I have to work out of my garage/shop.
