We are purchasing this bunkbed for the boys. It seems recently that the two boys end up in Lane's room. Bryce on the floor after having a bad dream, because he says he can go back to sleep if he is with Lane. Nothing like a "big" brother! We didn't like the idea of a ladder, just felt like that might be dangerous. This bed has stairs instead and storage in each step, plus it has a trundle bed! I am sure there will be lots of giggles and whispering in the nights to come! Great memories for the two of them!
