custom built for 2 younger teen boys, ht. between beds was tailored for the older boys head clearance plus growth over the next 2-3 years to maximize usage. Built with all “construction grade” 2×6 pine trimed to 5” wide on all the main frame, deep mortise and tenon joinery on all head/foot board joints. Stairs also built with full 1” pine lumber, I salvaged some elliotis pine (Brazilian) from a retail bed set thrown away and used for the steps (my first time using this elliotis pine – beautiful wood), Final size was 79”X56”x76”, stained with minwax mission oak poly shade.
