Smart way of assemblying basic/flexible furniture, with new bunk bed (make or buy), adding nice slide, tailor made for small room (two kids!).

We had a problem: how to maximize room space (square room, 16 m2, or 172 ft2) for 2 kids (5 and 2 years).
We also had a set of existing furniture: one big closet, 3 narrow closets, one existing Single bed. We need to continue to use them. Plus we need to add a second bed.
I read through Anawhite (great !!) some nice experience of DIY solutions for kids room.
I see the challenge and the opportunity to create something special for the room, to maximize space, and to enjoy a nice playground.

After long evaluation, I designed this solution, with a high bunk bed, nice slide, a lot of safety all around.

General Instructions

Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!

Finishing Instructions
Preparation Instructions
Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth.

It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
