We're still building the upstairs closet. Some progress has been made, but we seem to have stalled simply because it's nice enough to work outside. We have a significant amount of wood to put up for next winter and we're taking advantage of cool temperatures to do it in. But we did get the basics of the closet in place and Chris is working on fleshing out the rest of it whenever it rains.
So here are a few details so far - first, we decided to frame it in rather than building it as a stand alone piece of furniture (which is how we did the downstairs closet). This is a huge space - 11 and 1/2 feet long by 8 feet tall and a wardrobe that size is impractical to say the least.

The space is divided into four segments. Each segment consists of three levels - a top shelf for seasonal storage, a middle section for hanging clothes, and the bottom section will be comprised of 4 drawers.
