I finished the bed a couple weeks before Christmas.. but he didn’t get the ladder until Christmas. It was his Christmas gift. :) He got to sleep on it Christmas Eve and loves it!
I’m still figuring out the ladder though.
I made the ladder and it ended up being a couple inches short. I can’t screw it to the bed, or it would be fine, because it needs to be removable, so the baby can’t climb up and fall off the top…and she DOES try :). Actually with me standing near, she has climbed up the whole way all by herself..she’s quite the little dare devil at 16mo.! ..anyway..
I need the ladder to be a couple inches higher so I can put some hooks on it, or I need the bed to be a few inches shorter, which creates a problem with the boards around the bottom..so, I think I’m going to be rebuilding the ladder. In the spring, ..when it’s warmer. Until then, I help him up and down and he’s very careful!
As you can see in the pics, his room is VERY small, THEIR room is small. This loft bed has REALLY opened up the floor space in their room which has really been fantastic for playing in there through the winter, since we can’t go outside as much. We have all loved it!
