pirateshipbedroom1 Pirate Ship Bedroom With Rope Bridge, Slide, Top Access Closet

One of the world’s luckiest 6-year-olds, at least this week, lives in Minnesota. This jaw-dropping custom bedroom renovation from Twin Cities builder Steve Kuhl is featured over at My Modern Metropolis:

The main feature of the room is the incredible floating pirate ship. Kuhl used 2×12 ribs to construct the hull of the ship, covering them with layers of 1/2 inch plywood to act as the planking. A bomb-proof blend of plaster and epoxy with integrated coloring was used simulate an old ship’s hull.

But that’s not all. The room is also decked out with a rope bridge that connects the pirate ship to the top of a jail cell, and a rope suspended from the ship’s hull provides drop-in access to the closet. There’s also a completely hidden spiral slide, that lets you travel downstairs in a more adventurous way.

They’ve also got a follow-on interview with Steve himself. I know I’m not the only thirty-something out there who’s at least a bit jealous.
