The final design (after a few iterations)
The Hodgman's wanted a bookcase on this wall that would accommodate their wall switches, thermostat and doorbell.
The view coming down the stairs into the main living area.
The bottom panels were yet to be installed and the design was tweaked a bit.
Here Philip is on a ladder. :-) The design was tweaked a bit but the overall aesthetic is there.
This design originally had a curve element but was eliminated towards final install.
Bringing all of the above-door bookshelves together seamlessly was a fun challenge!
To the left one can see the shelving also installed above the closet door.
