This bed assembles quite easily with 2 people and has very detailed instructions which allow you to install the ladder at either end. Each bed can be used separately. The wood is solid and the bed feels very sturdy. But like some other reviews, the pine slats aren't strong enough on their own and I didn't want to break them. So I went to the hardware store and had them cut some 1/2" Birch plywood. Then put this on top of the pine slats (since they're already pre-drilled for screws) and it feels very strong holding my 200 lbs, girlfriend's 100 lbs and our 3 year old boy on the full bunk. The plywood also helps with the Serta 8" memory foam mattresses (also from Overstock) so that it wouldn't 'sink' between slats alone. The only problems I had with the assembly is that a few of the allen bolts stripped and are not sold at the hardware store. And on the ladder steps it's supposed to be 2 short steps and 3 long steps... I got 3 short steps and 2 long steps. Luckily Overstock has the most outstanding customer service I've ever encountered and sent an entire hardware replacement pack and the extra ladder step! Overstock is AWESOME!
