I have just assembled this bunk bed for my grandchildrens' use. The instructions for assembly are pictorial which works fine but you need to pay careful attention. These comments may prove helpful once you start assembling. To avoid confusion with which legs to use, the legs in step two can be distinguished by their round tops; that should be obvious but the pictures do not show this. Steps 7 and 11 shows the fixing of vertical bracing strips but incorrectly says they should be fixed with screws H. In fact, they should be fixed with screws J, of which incidentally I was one short, the only item missing. Be prepared for some difficulty in doing up some of screws C as some may be a very tight fit. A small supplied Allen type Key is used (tool F) and assembly would be easier if this tool had greater leverage. There is no doubt that this is a pine bed and needs airing to dispel its strong smell (I hope that this will go off soon). In common with many bunk beds the ladder rungs are prepared so that the narrow edge is used as a step. This, to my mind is a design flaw, as if the rungs were drilled and prepared to be horizontal, they would be comfortable to use. One criticism I have is that the underside of the top rail of the bed ends had very sharp edges, having been left as a machine cut edge. Correcting this is relatively simple if you have sandpaper, but should have been rounded on the edges during manufacturing. The assembled bed is quite sturdy, but as each bed base slat has to be screwed in individually, my cordless drill that I used as a screw driver was a godsend. A bunk bed that I assembled when my own children were young had rails that were taped together at the correct spacing making for much easier assembly. Overall, a sturdy bunkbed at a reasonable price.
