Built-In Bunk

Nestled between the guest bedroom and the entertainment room, this camp-inspired bunk room is the ultimate retreat that inspires loads of activity and creativity.

Bunk Space Optimization

Built by North Idaho college students in collaboration with Blog Cabin builders, a non-traditional layout of opposite facing bunk beds maximizes the overall space in the kids’ bunk room.

Guiding Light

An industrial pendant light hangs from a pulley on the home’s original concrete wall, evoking a camp theme with accompanying décor.

Set in Stone

A bedside dresser is customized with knobs fashioned from Idaho stones. Built-in storage racks conveniently house drinks, books and other knick-knacks for kids or overnight guests.

Tools of the Trade

A tool belt is creatively fashioned into a storage holster to accommodate the top bunk while continuing the crafty, kid-friendly vibe throughout the space. “We put the contractor’s tool belt on the wall because I was really hunting for a horizontal storage piece that wouldn’t stick out and is soft, so if you’re making the bed or climbing around up there you’re not going to hurt yourself,” says design coordinator Laurie March.

Corner Office

Homework never looked so appealing. A wood desk is tucked efficiently into a nook and paired with a work stool with ample light for an optimal study space. “That whole corner in general was a space reclamation project,” says Laurie. “We built the desk top with a map of Lake Coeur d’Alene that was left in the original home.”

Window of Opportunity

Maple trim encases a bedroom egress window that also doubles as an emergency exit. A sliding shade makes it easier for young ones and guests to adjust the lighting level in the kids’ bunk room.

Peg Away

Adjustable storage racks hang on a framed pegboard, perfect for holding sundries and other bedroom essentials.

Tiny Terrarium

An enchanting closed terrarium continues a rustic, outdoorsy theme in the kids’ bunk room and inspires the inner botanist.

Modern Bunk Installation

A ledger board attached to the wall eliminates the need for a left leg on the top bunk, leaving extra space underneath. A wide slatted ladder built into the bunk frame makes for an easy and safe ascent and descent.

Playful Pillows

Gender neutral colors and playful pillows make the space versatile and ideal for kid-friendly fun.

Smart Storage

A cozy throw blanket pulls together the blue and green hues found throughout the kids’ bunk. Smart storage is tucked under the bottom bunk as to not compromise valuable space.
