Advice on Building a Built-in Cupboard in Irregular Shaped Alcove


Postby Manchester Meldrew » Fri Jan 01, 2016 2:12 pm

Hi, I am new to these forums and a fairly inexperienced DIYer.

I would like to build a cupboard in my hall in an irregular alcove (measurements below). The floor is concrete and I would like it to be from floor to ceiling.

Firstly I would appreciate advice on how to make the frame and how to anchor it.

Many thanks
John

Improved graphic on what I want to achieve, with double doors on front.

First thing you need to decide what the cupboard will be used for ie will it have shelving?is it L shaped what type of doors and so forth.

Thanks for the reply tileclipproman.

The cupboard will be rectangular, mainly used to hang coats etc with one or maybe two shelves above for suitcases.
Given the lack of room in the hall I am considering two doors and perhaps a top hinged single door for the upper section. Ceiling height is 8ft.
