My granddaughter is spoiled too. I built her a dream princess castle with secret compartments and a slide. Her room is long and narrow so I had to be creative with the design. The bookcase is a secret door that leads to the bottom of the slide. The stairs has several drawers both in the front as well as under and to the side. There is also a sliding cabinet under the slide that leads to a secret closet in the back. There are end stands built into the top of the castle turrets. The bed is primarily built of finish birch plywood with the exception of the slide structure which is made of MDF. These pictures really don’t show all the features of this bed.

You have certainly taken on a lot of work to please your granddaughter and I’m sure she must be over the moon about it. Great build!
