I don’t normally build this style of bunk bed since there are some many imports in similar style flooding the market, but I had a special request. This custom like the style bud didn’t want screws showing on the end panels that attached the side rails. They also wanted to add some drawer extra storage

The drawers have a raised panel look and the ladder had to stop at the lower side rail to keep from interfering with the operation of the drawers.

It was finished in October 2012 and we used maple wood, dyed and stained to match a cappuccino color.
