Papa used a lot of the ideas from Ana White's website, specifically the Playhouse Loft bed and the Camp Loft bed.
He purchased a pocket jig to make strong joins and so that the screws wouldn't be visible.

Grandma also made curtains to turn the lower bed into a tent sometimes.
M3 moved into her new bed when we came back after Christmas. She really likes her big girl bed and we haven't had any trouble keeping her in it at night. I was very surprised that we didn't have to go through the mess of trying to get her back into bed over and over. We moved the crib into our room and M4 uses it now.
