Does anyone think that this is a good idea for my 3 dd's?....ages at time of use would be 6, 4 and 2. Trying to free up some floor space.

it looks like there's very little head height for the bottom 2 (and poss the top one unless you have enormous ceilings).

The top bed looks a bit high to me, for a 6 yr old.

They look great.
I've not taken much note of the dimensions so that would have to be considered.
We had triple bunks for ours at one point. We made them ourselves from 2 sets of stackable pine bunkbeds. We used 3 beds stacked and cut the legs of the bottom bed so that the top bunk wasn't too high and there was room to sit up. We don't have 8ft ceilings.
Our children loved them and also used them as a climbing frame. Eventually we needed 2 sets of bunks in the room so had to take the 3 down.
Making the top bunk was a bit of bind. Had to climb up and keep my balance and kept bumping my head . Although as they got a bit older I'd send one of the children up to make the bed.
I think they're a great idea. Just be warned that the 4yo and 2yo will soon be wanting to climb to the top

we do have fairly high ceilings - will go measure out. Just wondering if they'll ever actually get any sleep

We have all 4 of ours in one room - a double bunk bed, a cot and a mattress on the floor (as dd1 moved out into the guest room, but missed the others, so sneaked back in again - bless her!)

I think my kids would love climbing on it, but I don't think our ceilings would be high enough.

I might install a row of hammocks instead

I would worry about the height of it, especially for a two year old who will want to climb up to see their sibling.

when my ds was 2 he was put into the top bunk and stayed there because he was too scared to try to climb down. Like a high rise sheep pen. Brilliant too, because there was no room for them to jump up and down on the mattresses - bottom or top bunk, so no hi jinx. I did have a safety rail along the whole exposed side though. I can only assum a triple bunk would be twice as good.

A friends 2 year old fell off a top bunk and broke her leg badly. For that reason I would not have a triple height one. I bought the lowest level double bunk for my girls, it has a double bed at the bottom and single at the top. What about something like that? My girls are 13 an 10 now and still often share the bottom bit, often their brothers also end up in there too from their room!!
