ordered Monday evening, delivered Thursday afternoon - very fast. assembly was about 2.5 hours, but be careful of instructions - they are inaccurate so be careful and make sense of structure prior to building. the bed is very sturdy and slats solid, ladder a little weak for me to climb up 185 lbs but good for 120 and less - so very pleased with the integrity of wood. i'd give this a 9/10 especially when compared to local furniture stores' quality and value of bunks of which i'd give a 5/10.
I love this set it fits perfect in my girls room and work perfect on their own also. took some time to put together but loved the finished product. one complaint is that the planks that go under the mattress are a little short because if I screw down one side the other is really close to the edge. also I do recommend screwing them down otherwise they move when trying to put the mattress on.
Got this this week and spent most of the day putting them together. A power drill was a must. The instructions are not accurate as another customer commented. There were missing holes for screws and no only one of the holes was drilled properly for the wooden dowels that connect the bottom to the top so I had to go and buy another drill bit to drill the holes. The ladder was not drilled for the supports that allow you to hang it on the bed either. All in all, because of the problems we now have to mend TWO of the rails as they didn't go on properly. The wood seems VERY SOFT!! For a bed that costs this much, I expected better quality wood. I learned a big lesson, "Assembly Required" REALLY MEANS...you have to put every single piece of wood together. This took two of us, all afternoon to put together, thanks to the very poor instructions. We both have lots of experience putting things together. If you don't have any experience, I recommend hiring it done.
I would recommend it but the wood seems to be a veneer. Not solid wood. We bought a bunk bed before like this from a local shop and the price was about the same, however it was made of solid wood. Its more of a style issue than a quality issue. The bed is OK and suits our needs.
