I've been kicking around the same idea for my top bunk. How did you build the slide out? Rollers or just wood on wood?

I'll try to get you a picture. It's mostly wood, but has nylon blocks integrated as well so it slides really smooth but still holds it's position during travel.

Ok got the walls installed today. I must have bent the tracks when taking them out, the took a fair amount of work to get back into shape.

I started on the trim work and the support beams for the bunk. I'm using the red oak stain on the birch ply wood, and for the trim I'm using un stained oak. It's coming along, slow but sure..

Thank you! Man it feels great, it's amazing how much you can get done in 7 hours. I think I'm going to start taking off a days a month so I can be ready for Canopener in January.

The bunks look great.
How did you make the bottom one to slide out 20 inches?
(will want to try to do that too, if I can!)

Well the wife and kids spent the night at the in laws, so that have me a full day of mowing and working on the AS.

I was able to finish the bracing on the walls, and to rough in the bunks.

Oh and my walls are not blue, I put in some LED lights, the were labeled as bright white, but they are really a light blue

So the drivers side bunk is fixed in place, the walls are pretty narrow in that side so the bunk is only 22" wide.

The street side bunk is larger so I roughed it in as a slider. It's 30" wide fully open, and 16" closed. I still need finish staining and polyurethaning them. Polyurethane, 4-6 hours in between coats, that just kills me!!

Before the final install ill have to replace the bug screens in the windows and the 4x6 speakers. But it's moving along..

Finishing

Try the new water based polyurethanes. They dry much quicker and are almost as hard as the mineral based. You will need about three coats on surfaces that are exposed to wear, but with one hour dry time you can do three coats in one day. The water based finishes also will slow the fading of stains that occurs over time.

Ok the bunks are almost done, I just need to build ladders so the kids can climb in and out. I'm thinking ladders that just hook on that can be moved out of the way if needed. Rope ladders would be cool too..
