The Walk In Closet Project Episode 9

Now that the bases are done, and covered with plywood, it is time to build partitions. For this project, we are using 24×80” hollow core door blanks. There are a couple of reasons. They are dimensionally stable, pre primed, and inexpensive. Around 20 bucks a piece. A 24” panel allows you to center the closet rod at 12” giving you lots of room for hanging your clothes. With a few screws and some Powergrab, you have a strong stable structure.

We also are using the doors for the top of the partitions as well. We build the top in one piece out of a number of doors that we doweled on the ends.
Here is one view. The chrome strip on the top are steel studs we screwed to the ‘roof’ assembly to allow us to put it up in one piece. They will be detached and the screw holes filled prior to painting.

Here is another view. This one is from the new doorway.

Our trims are MDF pre finished flat moldings, which is great stuff to work with.

Since it is also primed, painting will be easier as well. We used a 2 1/2” molding for the top and the ends, a 3 1/2” molding between the partitions which allows us to hide the ends of the closet rod support brackets. The closet support brackets are 5 1/2” MDF.
