I love your modifications with extending the landing. Do you have more pictures that show the whole thing? Did you by chance write down any notes with what you did differently? We are building this bed next week and would love to make a "deck" like you did.

Hi, Ana here!  I might suggest something like this -

[[{"type":"media","view_mode":"media_original","fid":"3154931926","attributes":{"alt":"","class":"media-image","height":"834","typeof":"foaf:Image","width":"891"}}]]

Basically just increase the length of the side pieces first to however long you would like the deck to be.

Then, if you need extra support, add legs on the inside of the platform where needed.  On the front side if you are doing railing you could even extend the front leg up so it is part of the railing too.

 

You may need to add additional supports for the deck boards, shown in green above, but this should be easy enough to do.

 

Hope this helps!
