The walls in our house containing the fireplace insert were eating a lot of much needed space. So with permission from the boss I tore into them with the idea I could put in some extra storage. After cleaning out all the rat scat from some unwanted guests that had been living in the nice warm spot for who knows how long, I got started on the fun part.
I framed in where each shelf was to go with 2×4s to give a sturdy enough anchor with the idea that I could climb up them without the use of a ladder. After that I put some drywall over it. I used hard rock maple for the shelf supports and fascia. I used ¾” birch ply for the shelf base and hemlock quarter round to hide any gaps from the original construction. After that it was time to load it up with books 3 deep. I’m not allowed to climb it in front of the young ones but I sure had fun building it.
Thanks for looking!
