I have been making custom bookcases and shelves in our compact cabin home for two years. We finally got to the point we could bring the last load of boxed-up books home … we thought. More on that in a bit.
Well, yeah. My economics and political science books are all on the shelving unit by the front door.
Above that are the BIG BOOKS like When Technology Fails, Gray’s Anatomy, Natural Healing and all those how to do stuff for health, household, medicine and healing. Nearby is a horizontal stack of art paper and my two how-to-draw books.
It is really exciting for both of us to have our books out where we can see them AND in some coherent pattern where we can find The One we are looking for at the moment.
Just when I thought I had put a shelf into every nook available, we came up with another 7-foot-long, hardbound-book-capable shelf in our bedroom.
That one now awaits the appropriate board for me to begin construction. Which, in turn, gives a reprieve to the two boxes of books that did not fit on our current shelves.
