A success! This is a big closet, it holds all our stuff and can still sleep at least three Harry Potters.
Closets nowadays can get really ostentatious. People put high end, expensive cabinetry in their closets, to safeguard and categorize their high end apparel and accoutrements. Ours is going to be pretty simple. A place to hang clothes, shelves for jeans and sweats … yeah, that’s pretty much it.
The original house had about as much closet space as a small fishing boat. There’s a tiny rectangle in the original bedroom, a small spot under the loft stairs, and a spot up in the loft that makes phone booths look spacious and that’s after I enlarged it. For the addition, we added a bedroom and a walk-in closet. A nice, big, high ceiling walk-in closet.
Here’s a before picture:
The upstairs closet will have more storage space than all the closets and storage areas in the existing house combined.
