I would be THRILLED with any kind of built-in at my house- the closest thing we have is a big bookcase that DH screwed into the wall so it wouldn't tip forward. *sigh* With a house built in 1795, you would think it would have SOMETHING cool....
DP's not thrilled about the built-in unit idea being made by someone else. He's always wanted to do lots of woodworking, but how can it be practical in this space we live in? (We live in an apartment-style condo. with two bedrooms, one of which is actually a store room that's pretty cramped, that I want to convert into a sewing room for my business). Won't we need at least some enclosed room for woodworking? I'm not seeing the practical side, though DP does have a point on focusing more on cleaning up the clutter we have first.
On that note, I often organize our to-get-rid-off stuff, but lots of it never actually makes it out the door! (DP and I are both responsible for this). I want to sell some stuff, but it's more often too much of a hassle to me than anything to have people emailing me to haggle on prices, and strangers walking through my home! So I guess rule one should be get rid of stuff you don't need before aiming to create storage space for other stuff. Heck it'll make this place a lot more livable anyways, I have to agree. However, I still want to fulfill my curiosity and get a quote for a custom built unit
