Step 1: The Crate
Each Crate had 4 walls and a bottom and an open top. Made from either ¾ or 1” plywood or luan. Each wall measured close to 48”x48” the walls were attached to one another using rivets which had to be drilled out or hammered out using a punch. Apparently food crates can only be used 1 time to carry food then they are deemed dirty and up for grabs to be reused.
16 pieces of walls and 1 bottom were salvaged
Step 2: The Floor
So 4 sheets of crate wood were used to cover the subfloor and bring the room back to the same level as the kitchen floor. To eliminate a weak spot in the floor where the 4 sheets came together the sheets were staggered and cut to fit the space.
Step 3: The Stage
Then the washer and dryer were hooked up and placed on top to see how we did.
