    Child´s floor bed : McGypsy9
    Great idea for metal gate in the stairs. The stairs  can be very dangerous for kids. I forget most people have 2nd floors. I never liked a two story house.ive had 2nd story loft or spare rooms before and the house I own now has a full 2nd floor but the previous owners never finished it with rooms so it has become nothing but a storage nightmare. We had thoughts of turning it into an apartment for my daughter and her two children but we will see. It would take a lot of work but at least they would be out of my home in the downstairs.

    I have a new granddaughter who is 1 1/2 and she gets in to everything!!! She’s quite a handful and I’m not sure I would trust her to not go outside because she loves the pool and could easily access it.

    Wonderful! That shows he’s learning already. The people who make these beds also suggest that if the child can get out of the room himself you should put a gate at the door. If he knows how to open his door then he knows how to open other doors. At least put a security lock on your front and back door and put all medicines way up high where he can’t reach....unless of course he’s a climber...

    If you do continue to sleep with the child you probably wouldn’t have any problem getting the rails off and just plug up the screw holes. Build a tent top for it, makes them feel more secure. Let them cry a few days when you lay them down alone and after a while the child will get used to it.
    Good luck!

    Oh I’m not saying to change it out now...you’ve already built it. Maybe for the next baby...lol! Also...not a good habit of laying down with the child. My daughter in law did that with hers and the child still won’t sleep by herself at almost 13! Kids need to learn to grow.

    Wood Tray : McGypsy9
    I thought that’s where you got the handles from. They really look good on there.

    Lol ok I do understand that but you could always pull it away from the side wall so that both sides are without walls. Oh and hitting the floor is actually the reason they made this bed. It not only prevents them from getting hurt but it also teaches them that accidents happen. They also stated that most children that roll out of a bed like this will not even wake up. Don’t get me wrong, I totally understand the fears! Mine had bunk beds as children and fell out of those a few times more than I could imagine. I know it hurt me more than it did them...lol!

    Wall/Fire Place
    WOW I’m impressed! What a great use of space! Do the seats lift on the bench below? That would make awesome storage for the room and the bench seating is perfect for the coziness of the fireplace. Very creative!

    12' x 10' Pergola
    Very nice! What kind of brackets were used to hold the posts together? Was this a kit? I’ve been wanting a pergola for a very long time! Hubby is not able to build it, he can help some but can’t do it alone. I’m waiting for my son to be able to come and help but not sure when that might be. He has a very busy job and a family of his own so.... 
    Hope you are enjoying it!

    Child´s floor bed
    It’s a cute bed but I don’t understand why you would need side railing to prevent falls when the mattress is 4-6” from the floor?
