What can we do out of a window-less room, 3.70m long, 1.80m wide and 3.10m below ceiling?
Well, you can turn it into a lovely dressing room, with plenty of space to store your heavy and bulky stuff (like old magazines, scuba diving apparel, snowboarding stuff, etc.)... Kind of a small attic to me!
Well, as nothing's simple, the room's dimensions are far from the usual nowadays standards, (especially the 70cm-deep closet), plus the building being pretty old (built in 1927), the walls aren't that straight... So just forget about Ikea ready-to-go stuff, gotta custom-make it to measures!
So here we go, first I give it a try on Sketchup to fine-tune it, making sure everything fits, and listing all the wood board dimensions I need :
So, here is what I'm building with all that wood! Electric jigsaw, circular saw, router and sander are my very best friends those days.
Invisible hinges on the doors, invisible full-extend BluMotion drawer grooves (not that easy to find these, especially 65cm long... Finally got them at a discount price from Foussier), LED lights integrated all around the bottom part...
Lots of sawdust, but not only... Lots of plaster as well! removing the crappy false ceiling, building a plaster dividing wall, treating, plastering, painting, etc...
