So, I'm pretty new to woodwork but ambitious. I have an ugly wardrobe space I want to turn into a walk in. So the plan is to pull down the plasterboard wall, create a new one at the end of the sloping roof and put a door in it. Et voila, walk in. That part should be pretty straight forward, find the studs, build a frame, attach some plasterboard:-
Using this space, I want to build loads of storage. I would like to know if there's anything I'm overlooking before pulling down walls. firstly, there'll be a space where the wall was, what's the best way of covering that on the roof end? A thin layer of ply, replace the whole inside roof?!:-
Secondly, I have a storage plan (see last image, although that inside left board needs moved out and obviously the drawers & cupboard on the right wont be hollow). I figure some MDF (or something of better quality if I can figure that out). What is the best way to support all of these? Is it the same with the wall? Find studs and build support beams that I fix to?
I've did a fair amount of online research but support beams never seem to be mentioned and I can't see how it would all be stable on it's own. Are there any concerns I've missed?
I'll also be throwing low heat lights up in all compartments and on the flat roof part at the top but that's not too complicated. Ventalation is another concern but probably beyond the scope of a Woodworking site.
