Craftsman cottage loft bed

So thankful for these plans!  My daughter requested a cabin loft bed that could double as a "crafting nest".  I only had to make a few architectural modifications, but I built this by myself in five days, so I would say it's a very DIY-friendly build!  My daughter loves it and it adds functional and aesthetic appeal to the room!
