"The rope bridge is connected to the top of the jail cell, built to accommodate evil doers, thieves and little sisters."

This time designer Steve Kuhl came with the fantasy of pirate ship to bring some twist in living style. He used 2x12 ribs to support the hull of the ship home and later he covered them with layers of 1/2 inch plywood to act as the planking. The room features rope bridge and a rope suspended from the ship's hull provides drop-in access to the closet and a quick slide for evacuation out of ship structure.

"We constructed the crows nest using a ten inch hand-hewn timber for extra strength. Not seen here is a bed where important friends may get to sleep."

"The base of the rope bridge is anchored on top of the jail cell. We welded a custom steel door for that real jail feeling. Invite Bubba to complete the effect."

"This is what it looks like when you enter the bedroom. You will notice the side of the hull is peppered with cannon ports. They also serve as peep holes for watching the uncool masses below."

"Our client wanted us to build a one-of-a-kind bedroom for a one-of-a-kind son. We concepted a space ship, race car, and castle before landing on this design. What self-respecting six year old wouldn't want a pirate ship?"

"As with many of the things we build, this is was a first. Ultimately we derive great satisfaction out of overcoming odd design challenges. It's sort of like that good pain you feel the day after a heavy workout."

"Steve Kuhl tests the slide for accuracy. Also, he is carefully calibrating important features along the way. This procedure needed to be repeated for the better part of a day to insure proper slide operation."

"Tell your pal to put her coat in the last locker and watch her reaction as she discovers the hidden room within. A motion sensitive switch triggers the light to turn on, revealing an odd yet intriguing orange hole in the wall at waist height."

"Steve is ejected with great speed into the sport court at the bottom of the slide. The slide itself ran a total of 55 lineal feet and was procured from a local community center looking to upgrade."

"Here you can see how the slide is built. We housed it in such a way that it is completely hidden with the exception of the entrance and exit. The adjacent staircase allows the less adventurous to go the old fashioned way if they prefer."

"Looking down the rope into the closet below. For upper body workouts climb up the rope a few times each morning as your are getting dressed. You will be inspired by the echoes of you six grade gym coach in your brain."

"View from closet up through the hull of the ship."

"Steve Kuhl sits at the helm of the ship. The rope descends into the closet below for quick wardrobe changes."
