I spent about 40 hours. I made slight changes to the trim & rails for a bit more support. The back rail was very sturdy as it was attached to itself. I used an extra 2x2 to support the bed & cut 2 of them longer than fsmumfords, so they could rest on the edge of the units. I did not attach it to the wall or add any bracketing underneath. The back rail was an exact 10' for my build. You need to think about how that & the bulky stairs unit can get in the room! Also, a new saw blade for your circular saw at the begining of your project should probably be considered essential!
