Sweet Pea Bunk Bed with adjusted design

Submitted by Woodxcraft on Sun, 09/25/2016 - 19:49

My daughter found the Sweet Pea bed on the Ana White site. She asked if I would build one for the girls. And, of course, I agreed. I had to resove one big issue... Building the bed in my basement workshop and moving it to her 1920 vintage house where tight turns presented barriers to getting into the stairwell and up to the 2nd floor. My solution was to build the upper and lower bed separately. The front, back and sides of each bed are assembled with threaded bolts, washer and wing nuts. The top bunk bolts to the bottom bunk.  The pergola and roof facade also are bolted on. The stairs are two separate pieces that bolt together.
