This is an asset to any teen or kids room. It's simple and not overlay expensive and most should be able to do this without a arsenal of DIY skills

Step 1: Main Part

It's quite a simple build, just get a bed and put it on some kind of wooden stilts ( this can be done many ways) and add some wooden boards on the sides to create what I like to call "The Den" (see images if I'm not making sense) if using a double bed you can half the space under and use half of it for storage and the other half for an bed/ gaming area e.c.t.
<p>How high off the ground is the bed?</p>
I definitely am going to build this... Awesome idea!
If you have had a go at this intractable I would love to see it!
No sorry
Thanks and do you have am estimate of the cost to make this
I uses an existing bed frame but took out the legs and replaced them with 3&quot;x3&quot; timber fence posts and for the sides I used 18mm MDF and cut it to size for the bed I was using (both pieces were about 4ft off the ground)
How much wood and what kind of wood did you use or need
Thanks for the feedback! Sorry if I'm quite vague on detail but this design is very adaptable. Also please tell me if thing are unclear and hopefully I can help :)
This is a really awesome idea, and might be something I do for my kids! Thanks for posting :)
