Finished product firstSketchUp, always a good place to start. Also it helps with conversations when you have another person to sign off on it.“Shiplap!” – wife
Its actually just 5mm underlayment cut into 7″ strips by the guys at Home Depot, I marked the location of the studs and used my handy air nailer to get them to stay there.Good quality photo… Shows the spacer to get the bed in front of the window molding. Also shows how the bed frames were notched. The frames were notched for the 2×4 vertical supports. 4″ #10 drywall screws were used along with glue to make sure there wasn’t any creaking and nothing was going to move with jumping and whatnot.That’s a little better. Kid was still using this as his room which made for a difficult construction schedule. Standard pine 2×4 and 2×6 all screwed and glued together. I wanted to build a solid base and then face it all so it would look nice.Two beds… I ended up completely changing the height because these were too close to the ceiling.After adjusting the height of both beds this felt much better.Framing out the shelves and putting in supports for the facia for more shiplap.“This railing is too high” – wife Standard black iron pipe, 8″ piece with a 60″ pipe for the top rail, 48″ for the lower rail.Stairs done and more shiplap. The stairs are 3/4″ plywood for the stringers with 1×12″ boards for the treads and risers.“more shiplap!” – wife. Also we added lights behind the shiplap because it seemed dark in the stairwell, now its OSHA approved.Had to get the strip lights put in, I couldn’t wait for this step. Also, said wife painting.1st coat of painting done.Glamor shot.He’s so excited.Nighttime glamor. Standard Rope lights behind the shiplapFinally all done.
The lights are 16′ LED 5050 strip lights off amazon with a remote control.
