DIY Office Built Ins — Life on Still Water Lane

This took me a little while to write, since the salon go super busy with the Holiday season. So better late than never. When we bought this house last November I knew I wanted the office to have built ins. Our last house we didn’t do it and I regretted it. So Pinterest I went for inspiration.

#1 - draw it and then tape it out - to scale on you wall. And I mean All of it. Every Shelf, all the trim and don’t forget your electrical. This saved me from a big design mistake and ultimately both time and money. 

Can you guess why I built this ? 
—Because the estimate cost to have someone else build it was more than $8000.  That was not in the budget! Not even close. Which brings me to number 2:

#2 - there is a reason carpenters charge such a high price tag to build something like this. It’s a lot of work. It’s a lot of calculations. And there is a lot of room for error.  But that doesn’t mean it’s not possible ( clearly I accomplished it 🤣🤣). Just be prepared for it to go slower than you antic Built In Wall Cabinets Living Room, Wall Cabinets Living Room, Cape House, Big Design, Prayer Room, Built In Cabinets, Build Something, House Renovation, Home Repairs

My dream for TJ’s office built-ins is to use four pre-made cabinets and then build up. Then there will be metal grids as the next layer on either side, adding another four feet to the height. On top of that, I will add 18” cubbies for storage.
