I built this for my daughter's room, to give her a little more play space. I did end up altering the plans slightly for stability. I added backs to the bookshelf and to the desk. If I had to do it again, I would not use the turned feet, it is a weak point in the design. Instead I would have continued the 2x2's to the floor. It got cold on me, and I am waiting for warmer weather to paint her ladder.
