Modifications to Ana's original plan:
- 4x4 posts instead of 2x4.
- Crossbars attached to 4x4s with biscuits and pocket holes for added strength.
- Modular build for easy disassembly, moving, and reassembly: 2x6 and 2x4 rails attached to end assemblies with knock-down bed hardware. Deck hung on 4x4 posts with angle iron. Bed breaks down easily into separate components (stairs, deck, 2 large end assemblies, 6 rails, slats and plywood mattress support).
