Shot some video while working on this project, and while incomplete on many technical aspects, it gives a pretty good general overview of how one can do this yourself, rather than simply go for those flimsy and cheaply made storage cabinets you can buy at the ‘big box’ stores and assemble yourself.
In time, those type of cabinets will cause headaches(I know, I’ve owned some) when the elements of time and use takes their toll on them, and when putting several together in one limited area they may tend to even cause some wasted space as their sizes are limited, plus they’ll look more like you’re storing storage cabinets rather than actually using them for any particular purpose.
Once those laminated doors start to warp, the hinges come loose or bend and/or lose their tiny screws, and the composited bottoms start to separate, it is a real pain to rectify properly since the materials used are the cheapest they can be and it becomes an eyesore that you will simply ignore till it gets worse and you’ll end up having to replace them down the road. By then a newer one likely won’t match what you have, and then you’re back to the cluttered look.
The cabinets I built in this project are heavy, sturdy, waste no space and will likely last the lifetime of the house and even if they don’t, materials needed to fix them will always be readily accessible since they are common and easily found.
UPDATE JUNE 23: I haven’t been back there yet, but I am told when the tornado’s came thru town a couple weeks ago a very large tree came down on the house and the Laundry room and is half destroyed, so I’ll be back there soon, after the insurance’s guy’s are thru, and get some decent shots of the finished garage with the floor installed and see how it held up over time.
