no previous part Part 1 of Storage for this old house... series Part 2: Panels and planing... »

We have an old house and there is not place to put anything…. Our closets are tiny our rooms are cluttered with chests and junk, the stairways have chests and piled on junk. The reason for this is that A/C or Heat was not invented when the house was constructed. So we pile up towels and sheets and such in several trunks and chests that while they are pretty(I made them) the are unpractical. Thus we start Sandi’s Crhistmass present !

SO. in that light I was tasked to build something to tidy up the upstairs..

Wife unit/lover wants a place to stow what needs to be stowed… a “Linen Closet

You walk up the top of my Upstairs (its very wide stairace and landing and turning to the back bedrooms.. but framed with a window), we have exactly 40”x16” of space that is out of the flow way.

So we argued and designed this…

And Here we go!

Wife “AutoCaded” it and this is it Cleaned up…

Good design. Can’t wait to see pics of the final result, maybe even some pics of the building process too!

Looks really good. Might even need a new tool or two. Sure will add to the house!
