I made this bed for my daughter, as her room is quite small, and storage space is limited. Moving the sleeping area up high makes the floorspace of the room much more versatile.
Step 1: Main sections
The bed was built in my shed, in 4 main parts. This allowed me to actually fit it through the door into the bedroom and also, the bed is far too heavy for one person to move when fully assembled. I started with the bookshelf, then build the ladder and foot end. Once they were complete, I made the base frame for the mattress, then the peg board backing.
