This is a bed I made for my daughter. I just made a simple frame out of plywood and variuos sizes of pine for the bed. The frame sits on top of a ledger board on the wall and 2 steel cables from the cieling. For the cables I got two 4×4 x4 post and put an eyebolt through the center to attach the cable then I layed the post between the joist in the ceiling. That things not moving at alll! She hates the ladder and I do too so it will eventually be changed but it works for now.

Really cool bed for your little girl. I like the ladder idea of getting into bed from the back corner. Very nice.

Well, that’s one way to keep your kids from jumping up and down on the bed. Pretty cool design.
