    Great build. Do you have any plans to this, though? As a novice DIYer I still need some stuff spelled out, and I'm sure others do too.

    Very creative! We really need to get to Chicago to see this! Can't wait to see everything you have done to the place! You guys are very talented!

    Awesome. Very impressive! Love it. Such talented young men! Congrats, well done!

    Great use of space! How do the shelves work for a ladder? Are they pretty strong?

    Thanks! The shelf supports are very strong and each rung can comfortable hold three people's weight.

    Spectacular Design, good craft, and easy to follow, Well done.
