Step 5: Hanging Shelves

Given two attachment points on a wall, you can suspend shelves using galvanized wire. The wire makes a triangle as it goes down from the attachment point, under the shelf, and back up to the attachment point.

This design doesn't eliminate the need for wood, but it does minimize the amount needed to make shelves.
I love it! I live in Nicaragua and just had to move to a new house where I can't drill anything into the walls, however the roof beams are exposed so I've been hanging just about everything from the ceilings. Next step is the kitchen...
This is pretty well thought out. I really admire your house, it's definitely the closest thing to what I would like to one day make for myself.
