Hey Bob, I have the same bed as you! What do you think of it? Can you take more pictures of the top so I can see how much room you have? How high are your ceilings?

I love it

I replaced the stock desk with a big slab of butcher block and added extra side support beams for the heavier piece of wood.

The bed is capable of a larger mattress than I'm using but I like using the smaller bed and then leaving space for books and things of the sort up next to my bed.

I think my ceilings are 9' but we cut down the bed a little bit

My sister had used it in a NYC loft that had 15' ceilings so there was never a problem before.
