Bed is solid and works excellent for our 8 year old. The only issue I had was the bottom set is particle board and when installing, if not VERY careful, you will break the side walls as the assembly instructions have you moving and flipping several times. This puts a LOT of weight on a flimsy piece that is critical for the foundation. I went to the big box store and purchased metal reinforcements to help support the base which was no big deal, just an improvement request to the manufacturer to make all foundational connections in solid wood for stability. Other than that, the bed is beautiful and quite sturdy with the adjustment.
We haven't put the bunk up yet. The full bed is really sturdy, of excellent quality. Our main issue was the height. With a basic spring mattress, no box spring, the top of the mattress was 34" off the ground. Even for adults this was hard to get on and off of. There's no way the bunk would have fit with our ceilings. We cut the posts down, which we were able to do since it's real wood. Took off like 8" and now it's ideal. Also bought plywood to make a sturdy foundation.
