Since we bought this house in 2017, my wife has wanted this built-in. I just couldn't find the time, but thanks to COVID, I have lots of time now. The whole thing is 8' tall and just shy of 12' long. Each book case is 44.5" wide and 12" deep and the faux fireplace is 52" by 18" deep. I used 3/4" Birch plywood for the carcasses, select Pine for the face frame, trim, rails, and stiles, Pine for the shelves, and 2"x 8" and 2"x 6" dimensional lumber for the mantle. Oh, and 1/4" Birch Ply for the back and door panels. Again, came out pretty good, but many mistakes made.

That looks great, Doug! Nice work.

White built-ins are a nice classic look, and are always pretty popular!
