Finally grandsons bed is done. Set up picture in garage, using wonderful jaw horse to let me see if all will fit. Only a few screws to keep it “solid” . Next pic is all set for the matress and excited grandson. The main pic shows backer on book case and bed complete.
Will provide storage & maybe a little reading area under the bed. Yes, that has already been mentioned as something Poppy can add. Amazing how one thing just leads to another. Have to keep making sawdust ,wheeeee.

Bottom of the bed is only 40” off the floor so not too high a climb. Regular single matress fits fine. 2×6’s for sides and ends. 14- 2×4’s under the matress & 2- 2×4’s on each end for steps/braces. Very solid & fun project.

Cool bed! Like the design especially the shelves and the reading area. I’m sure your grandson loves it.
