Built in the spare room over a raised platform that makes room for the stairs. This was a real challenge (and a first built in for me too) so much to build around and on to, with very narrow gap between the platform and the door.

In addition to the two drawers there’s also storage inside the headboard box and behind the panel to the right of the drawers.

This was fun, looking forward to making more.

What a great first project, nice was to handle the stair issue as sometimes we have to work with what have been provided in the way of constraints. Also a great space saver

That looks like that’s a great improvement to the room. With the pitched ceiling and skylight, it gives it a cozy boat hull feel. Just need wood paneled walls and some brass hardware :)
