This was my first ever project. Prior to this, I had used a hammer and drill, so I learned ALOT here. Thank you so much, Jenny for your wonderful detailed plans. You are just awesome. I'm convinced that if this had been designed by a man and the instructions detailed by a man, I would have never been able to do this for my granddaughters. My husband helped with the painting and whenever I needed extra hands and muscles, and I didn't do anything on moving day. The whole family pitched in to move it to their house and set it up. My oldest son helped me with the roof rafters, since I had a bit of a problem figuring those out, but other than that, I managed quite nicely with such wonderful instructions. I learned how to use all the necessary power tools, too! I changed the width of the stairs to 24 inches, rounded off the shelves, and added lights for reading, which can be regulated with a timer we purchased. Ella and Emily are very excited and absolutely love their room, now.
It was fun to challenge myself with this project. Again, thank you Jenny, and thanks Ana for your wonderful website and inspirations! You can see more uploaded pictures on my facebook page (I sited Ana's web page and Jenny's for appropriate credit). Just look me up (Deanna Carter in Georgia USA) on facebook and send me a friend request.
