    Hello,

    Was looking to see if anyone has built steps to get up into one of the fold out beds.
    My floor plan has a gap of space that is somewhat wasted, whose only purpose, from what I can guess, is to facilitate getting into and out of bed.

    I have a toddler and lets just say it's one big step. So, I was thinking about building a couple steps that either have flip open stair treads or pull out drawers for more storage and would double as making the ascent and decent a little easier/safer. To that end, I didn't know if someone has maybe done this already?

    If so, I invite any pictures or stories of success and/or works in progress.
    And, I'm open to any suggestions even if you haven't done it yourself.

    Thanks

    I made an upholstered padded lid for my milk crate to use as a pantry/step in my truck camper. I'd planned something more elaborate but wondered where I'd put my milk crate if I put in a step.

    You have enough room there to build a deep step with some storage space underneath. Just be sure to anchor the step to some side supports to keep it secure.
