my first paying job.

I got hired by a freind/coworker to build him and his wife a floor to ceiling linen cabinet and matching vanity for there bathroom.
ive done plenty of little stuff for freinds and family but with no payout so i'm pretty pumped. i'm already trying to figure out what to buy for the shop. The cabinet is just shy of 8ft. and is 35 inches wide.

so I built something like this except mine was complete and utter crap and the problem I had was moving it because I wasn't smart enough to make it in two sections and at that time my shop ceiling was the same height and I couldn't tilt it to get it out or anything it was a nightmare and a disaster.... so to the point did you make my mistake?

+1 Tommie. Is that one piece or two? Looks like your in a pickle. Could I be wrong? Hopefully yes.
Looks nice though.

yes its one piece, ive accually had it laying down for most of the build and then lifted it up for the photo. but yes its close.
luckily shop is just tall enough and enclosed trailer is just long enough.
