Old Waterbed Drawer pedastals- what's the ceiling slants doing? 3 drawer unit from waterbed can be made custom height to accommodate slanting roofline- and make use of 'Wasted' floor space-Would love a deck/balcony over the first floor bedrooms- If they wouldn't throw eachother off or platform dive into the pool or trampoline.....!!!!! I have three sons.....hhahaha

Do you have enough ceiling space to do this? They can flip a coin every six months to see who gets the top.

Is the dotted line the knee wall?

If so that entire wall could become desks and drawers, with all the electrical equipment hidden. The 11 x 7 area could be just for hanging clothes.

Or 3 of these, where each bed has a desk and a bureau.

Or this, which you can design yourself from IKEA products and it won't be a break the bank solution. You could have a couple of extra beds for sleepovers.

P S, how long until college? :>)

I like this idea but you would need to adjust it for 3.

Jenny, the area which you have marked 11'-6" x 7'-1", is it possible to create a long desk? Then atleast 2 of your kids could easily do homework at the same time. If not that space can be used as a huge walk in closet. What is the height of the ceiling at the lowest point in the room?
