  • 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.

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
