One question then: Is it attached to the wall? If so, how?

Yes. I built a basic framework out of regular construction lumber(2x4s and 2x6s) which was attached to the wall and to the post (which itself has a core built up from construction lumber). Then I covered all that up with finish materials like hardwood plywood and poplar lumber (I may have used 3/4" MDF, mitered, to wrap the post). The spindles for the upper bed came from the customer.

The carpet was cut out so the post can sit directly on the plywood subfloor.

Can you give me the measurements of the 2 levels so I can build this. How far from the ground the 2 levels are - How wide? How long is the wall how long is each platform. How far from the ceiling each platform. I'm trying to do it in 8 foot ceiling room. Thanks for your answers.

Same comment for the lower platform. No rules. Just put it high enough so that the child can sit up in bed underneath it (so you need to know the bed height) without hitting, or feeling like they might hit, their head. Then whatever is left is just what you get for sitting on the platform.

How high is the ceiling

I believe it's 9' (was a while ago and I generally don't keep drawings). There's not enough room for adult standing height under the bed platform (where the desk is) and still have room to sit up in the bed. Ten foot might have done that.
