The bunk bed stair-ladder

To increase space in my girlfriend’s son’s room, my girlfriend asked if I could convert the beds into bunk beds and build a small ladder. I agreed but thought I had an idea to make something more fun than a boring, old ladder. Instead I created a series of ladders and stairs that they could climb over to get to the top bunk. And to help with space, the inside of the structures have a base to store stuff. The result was more like a practical, in-door jungle gym than a means of reaching the top bunk. In the end the boys enjoyed the structure and there’s only been one fall with zero serious injuries to date. :)

Here’s how it looked:
