Making beds is a pain. You need to lift mattresses enough to get linens on. 2 people make the task easier. Form clearly over function.

I just need to repeat, Sullivan Building&Design your work is so amazing, everything you guys touch has clearly been thought out and is in line with the companies philosophy. I love the serious design and those playful moments mixed the the inovation, what can I say, I'm a huge fan!!!

Where can I find plans to make a built- in bed like this one? - My husband and I are remodeling my attic into a Master Bedroom suite and this would be a perfect solution and look for our space. With detailed instructions I believe I could make this myself. I am also using the all-white theme.

These beds were custom designed for the space which they occupy. All the details would change relative to the room you would build them in. You must first decide the mattress sizes and then work out the details from there.

Love this concept. I have a large room with 2 sets of bunk beds in our beach house. What are the approx dimensions of this room? Do you have more photos that would show where the door is and closet?

What a clever way to separate kids who don't want to "share a room"!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lisa Frederick added this to Paperback Books Get a Second Look
Another interesting approach to using books as a design element: turning paperbacks so that their pages face outward. To me, this feels like a novel (sorry) take on the classic designer's trick of covering books in white paper for a uniform look.
Laura Fenton added this to Attic Bedrooms Turn a Corner
Sullivan Building & Design Group made the most of this space with an interior renovation that made a bedroom with built-in beds and book nooks. An all-white palette keeps things from looking cluttered.
Danyelle Mathews added this to Cozy Nooks Help Houseguests Sleep Tight
Carving out a soothing space like the one shown here, with its white linens, simple lighting and book collection, will not only provide guests with comfort, but the bed placement will give them a bit of privacy — even if bunking with others is required.
Michelle Fries, BeDe Design, LLC added this to 10 Inventive Bunks, Cabin Style
3. Use every inch. A built-in bookshelf inside a built-in bed adds dimension. The twin bed tucked behind the queen is a great way to capture every last bit of space. Even though there is only a small dividing wall between the two beds, the staggered heights give each side their own personality and privacy.
Laura Gaskill added this to Easy Green: 10 Tiny Homes That Live Large
The Houzz: River Road CottageBy: Sullivan Building & Design GroupTip 1: Carve out extra space with built-ins.Even the beds are built in here, making an attic nook work as two bedrooms. Plus, there's plenty of storage for books.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Downsizing Help: Where to Put Your Overnight Guests
If you have a guest room, consider partitioning it, as in this space, which allows families to all fit into one room. My son and daughter-in-law would get the big bed, the twin girls would get the single …
