A real built-in

I know you are all saying gee them draws must be awfully small,well you're wrong the cabinet is actually 24" in the wall,the draws are 30" long.the staircase is located just to the right,we did'nt want to restrict the walk path,besides it was a good use of unused space,the cabinet itself is about 12' long and was built in 4 pieces.birch carcass,poplar door frames and misc hardwood moldings for trim,the choice of wood was made for paint.

I agree, very creative. A great way to make use of normally unusable space.

Do one thing at a time, do it well, then move on.

Nice...But really... 12" deep? I hope they don`t bump their heads trying to get to it!!!! Could`ve been a little deeper. Rick

Never... I mean always... never mind Rick

Rick: Didya ever think they could be "little people"?

nywoodwizard,

I don't quite know what some of these guys are referring to...i.e. pianoman and stuart...I think this is a great illustration of intelligent design. I've actually done a similar thing in the past. Stick them drawers into the attic space except when you need them. Good job.

NY,

I did the same thing in my own house in an upstairs bedroom. Saves an enormous amount of space.

Looks great. Nice job.

Cheers,
Jim

awesome job...

Cabinet looks good and is a superb use of space... hitting the head might be a concern, but since we can't really tell what the headroom actually is.. But nonetheless.. Great job and congrats....

NYwood, I really like the job and design of your cabinet. The added feature with the drawers make it a truely custom built-in. the lines are well ballanced. I can tell that you strive to stay exclusive. Well done! Rick
