I built this pine Loft Bed for a ladies little girl. She only wanted the bed to be 42’’ off the floor. Strange, but whatever. It is built like a rock. I will have to get my brother to help me assemble it at her house.

Lost my shirt on it moneywise because I guessed at a price for her. After purchasing the materials I realized that materials cost $60.00 more than my quoted price to her. She will never know that I built it just for “PRACTICE”. LOL.

It certainly looks like you made a good job of it Don. Too bad about the low price quote, but I respect you for sticking to your word. She will probably give you more business in the future or at least tell her friends about your. Your customer probably wants to put a chest of drawers and maybe a desk under it to save space.
