Introduction: 1/2 Bedroom

Typically a bedroom is contained inside an enclosed box in the privet section of the home. This project inverts the bedroom and stacks its main functions.

Great build. Do you have any plans to this, though? As a novice DIYer I still need some stuff spelled out, and I'm sure others do too.

Great use of space! How do the shelves work for a ladder? Are they pretty strong?

Thanks! The shelf supports are very strong and each rung can comfortable hold three people's weight.
