Boys bunk beds

I have 3 little boys that share a room. I still wanted a ton of floor space for them to play so this is what we came up with! There are 4 twin beds and 2 trundles, making it a total of 6 beds. It took my husband and I 3 days to complete this project. Here are some pictures of our construction process.
After all it's was all done.
This is what it looked like at the beginning of the 3 days.
After the second day
On the 3rd day before paint!
Another after. There's a little hiding spot behind the stairs where they can read a book or play.

    I LOVE this! So many possibilities... drawers in the stairs and/or the "upper" deck for clothes rod and/or sofas in the lower deck ? Even if you use all three ideas, there's still the trundles for two people to sleep. GREAT use of space!

    This is amazing looking. Great Job! Now I want to use this look for 1 top bunk and underneath it make a huge toy box and shelves. Thank you for the idea for my 12 year old daughter who loves the idea and saw yours.
