Plans for a livable home provide for adequate storage. Plenty of good storage space will save time and energy for the family and will simplify home life. Most houses built fifty or more years ago have very few closets. Many of these houses are still being used and need more storage space. The trend is for more built-ins-many and different kinds of closets, cabinets, chests and storage walls. Some of these storage walls are portable but look built-in. Whether you are building new, remodeling, or trying to make your home more livable, plan for lots of good storage. It may mean as much as the addition of another room in your house. This bulletin gives workable plans for closets and storage spaces. Basic dimensions are given. The dimensions may easily be adapted to suit individual cases.
