A free standing wardrobe is a practical and cost effective way of having hanging space for clothes and shoes in a limited space. The room itself was only three meters by one meter, roughly 10ft by 3ft, and the owner wasn’t quite sure why such a small room existed in their new home. The house was built in the 1970s.
The material used was standard conti-board which fitted in with the rest of the décor. I made a lid with end pieces and a short back; this prevents the top from sagging over time with the weight of the clothes. Two sides were then added. There was no back.
The whole piece was then simply screwed to the wall. Being 500mm deep, about 20”, there was room for the customer to access the ‘fitted’ wardrobe.

Traditional standards. Traditional tradesman. Traditional service.
I have been a carpenter for over 45years, 5 year apprenticeship as a boat builder, 2 years as a wood machinist, then a spell repairing furniture and manufacturing reproduction antique clocks. I spent a further 15 years working in a therapeutic environment passing on my skills, before setting myself up as a self-employed carpenter/joiner.
As you will appreciate, I undertake a wide range of projects, so scrolling through the site map may well direct you to past work that may be similar to your requirements.
The preferred way to contact me is by using the contact page on this site. However you can always ring me during normal working hours. Lead times vary depending on the time of year; small jobs I can often do promptly.
I cover Southampton and I am also happy to visit Winchester and Salisbury areas, but a small fee will be charged.
