26BH bunk ladder

My 5yo daughter decided she is big enough to sleep in the top bunk this season (wants to get away from her 3yo brother). So, I had to come up with a way for her to get up and down. I will take it back out and sand/stain it, but wanted to see how it works next weekend... I made the left side higher to help her get in and stay in - figured I could cut it if need be. Even our 3yo goes right up and in... Pretty happy with the results.

Sorry the pic is sideways - can't figure out how to turn it and make it stay...

Looks good. As far as the pic being sideways, if you used your smartphone you just need to turn it 90 degrees to take the pic. I'm sure there's someone out there who's tec savvy enough to come up with a better idea but this was an issue I had and the fix for it

Looks good. I made one out of 1" PVC that works pretty well.

How did the PVC hold up? I was afraid of it snapping?

Its actually holding up quite well to my surprise. My little girl weighs under 50 lbs. Before I let her use it, I climbed on it and I weigh in at 225 with no cracking.

As far as looks go, its white PVC pipe. I didn't want paint scratching and pealing off. It has worked well but will eventually build one from 2x4's and dowel's.

If I get a chance to swing by storage, I will take a picture and post it in case anyone wants to try their hand at it.

How did you secure your ladder to the bunks?

Here is a pic of the PVC ladder, my wife said she noticed it bending a little on our last outing so I think I am going to build one from wood. Thanks Gone Campin
