Mid-Height Loft Bed

I am looking for a loft bed for my daughter. Most on the market seem to be quite high off the ground; I am looking for one with about 42 inches of clearance below. Something like this: http://www.sleeplandbeds.co.uk/hyder-midloft-mid-sleeper-bunk But sold in the USA. Room and Board has their 'Bower Bed,' which is almost right but not quite high enough (and is one piece of solid steel so getting it in the apartment is a problem). Curious if anyone knows of any products or hacks to existing products?

Loft beds for children under 10

My daughters want loft beds for their room. However I'm a bit concerned about their ability to get down in the middle of the night, particularly the 5 year old, who is a bit short. I've looked into a DIY solution but I really don't have the time. Custom furniture is a bit out of the budget under $600. The Ikea models seem a bit wobbly and too tall.. Does anyone have any suggestions for ones that are lower height or preferably adjustable as the kids get taller?

building a loft bed

I'm finally doing something to make my bedroom liveable (and, hopefully, bring some sanity to my scattered life!): lofting my bed! Keeping guitars and bikes underneath! Cheap, affordable, and I can build it myself! One problem: I've got no carpentry experience... [more inside]
