So when can you come over an install one for me?

I love love love the stair drawers. I have always told myself that when I have a house with stairs I am making the first 3-5 into storage. It is such a great idea. Best. Parent. Ever.

Must show to husband........  We need to move 2 boys into one room.  We were going to do bunk beds,  But at this stage a loft bed would be better.  because one boy is in a crib still  and will be for a while.....  Now I can show him he can just make one!!!

I love love love the stairs/drawers idea!!!  We are most definitly lacking in storage for thier room too...

This is brillant...  *this rocks!*

Great job! I love the storage. Did your daughter choose the color or was it a total surprise? I'm always curious how others have approached building loft beds.

I've made two loft beds.

One is in pieces in the basement waiting for one more group of carvings for a leg. I decided to make it have four sets of symbols having to do with the four directions and woman, love, man and passion. (I'm stuck on an animal to represent east / passion.) It is free standing when put together. It used to have a four foot area under it just for sitting and chilling on cussions. It wasn't practical for studying though. There was a ladder but I planned to make some steps.

The second one is in a trailer made to look like a Vardo (gypsy wagon). We put in a king size bed because my hubby is 6'1". The roof goes to a rounded peak of 9' and we thought it would be best if we could both sit up strait. That left the 4' area underneath again but I think we are going to raise it for more head space underneath. It tends to be clutterd dead space now, and when we sit up in bed to read we don't sit strait up anyway. There is a ladder that slides into a closet when not in use but I bought a set of storage boxes that raise like stairs from Ikea. They worked well for the run / rise issue we had. (We have too little floor space.)

I appriciate people who build and design things on their own.

Life, liberty and the pursuit of craftiness.
