    Default Pirate ship bedroom

    • Boy's bedroom features rope ladder to timber pirate ship
    • Badly behaved shipmates can be locked away in wrought-iron jail
    • Crew can escape through two-storey spiral slide, or down rope ladder into closet
    It looks like every little boy's dream idea of their perfect bedroom.
    But this is in fact one extremely lucky six-year-old's very own pirate ship room, complete with rope bridge, crow's nest and a two-storey hidden slide.
    This ultimate in cool sleeping quarters was created by designer Steve Kuhl, and also features a wrought-iron jail cell and hidden rope ladder access to the closet.

    Ship-shape: The ultimate pirate bedroom was created by Steve Kuhl for a lucky six-year-old in Minnesota

    On the lookout: The amazing creation also features a crow's nest, rope bridge and two-storey slide


    Dream bedroom: Intrepid explorers, or even little sisters, have to enter the ship over a wooden rope ladder after climbing on top of a wrought-iron jail cell

    The bedroom was chosen by its owner in Minnesota from a selection of a space ship, racing car, castle and the pirate ship.
    Mr Kuhl, who owns Kuhl Design Build, used two large planks to construct the hull of the ship before covering them with layers of plywood as the deck planking.
    A mixture of plaster and epoxy resin was then used for the ship's hull.
    There is also a spiral slide which is accessed through a hole at the top and comes out in a sports court on the bottom floor of the house.
    No doubt the proud owner will not be short of friends.

    Escape route: The ship also features a rope down into the closet underneath

    Testing: Designer Steve Kuhl puts the two-storey spiral slide through its paces, and again...

    Rapid descent: A drawing showing where the spiral slide deposits its inhabitants


    Walking the plank: The designer crashes on to a mat at high speed in a sports court on the ground floor

    Helmsman: Steve Kuhl who came up with the ultimate boys' bedroom design

    I would have loved something like this too...dammit. Not bitter though.

    Its super cool!

    My hesitation would be if they had to sell the house in the future.....might be a hard sell..or an easy one, depends.

    Wish they would have shown inside the hull so I could see the bed...
