1: The ceiling is 8ft high, so the bed itself has to be about 5ft or so.
2: I only have about 8' x 3' of floorspace to work with.
3:I need light to read by, a softer light than that of the ceiling fan.
4: as plans for a future project involving space currently occupied by my dilapidated dresser, i decided to incorporate a wardrobe of sorts to the design.

Loft Bed Remake, Take 2
Step 1: A Solid Foundation
Step 2: Dress for Success
Oh and a mattress. I could definitely use a mattress.
I also took into account that the bed would not sit up against the wall perfectly due to the floorboards. the one's shown in this rendering are 3/8" inch thick.
Step 3: Light the Way
Step 4: Final Thoughts
Until next time, Peace out.
