This incredible one-of-a-kind bedroom was built by Kuhl Design Build for a client in Minnesota with a one-of-a-kind six year old son. Before falling on the pirate design for the bedroom, the design team conceptualized a space ship, race car, and castle before finding the perfect design fit. The main feature of the room is the incredible floating pirate ship. Kuhl used 2x12 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 is also a completely hidden spiral slide, that lets you travel downstairs in a more adventurous way, just like a pirate!
