home improvement


Our plucky heroine designed a thing, and decided that the thing needed decoration, a little painted cloud. This is one of the two short ends of the structure. The thing is a variation on an indoor drying rack, which will hang from the ceiling over the washer/dryer (dead cubic space) and rather than hold things to dry; it will be a storage system for the two different sorts of bubble-pak window panels used here to moderate climate. Mylar is used in the summer to bounce heat outside, and clear in the winter to increase interior light and keep indoor heat indoors.

This view shows the decorated end of the storage rack in situ, sans actual window panels that will be clipped to the internal lines visible inside the wooden framework

I am pleased, the storage rack will work exactly as I had hoped, and fits neatly in the designated space...

  1. Pure. Genius.

    Nicely made as well! Reminds me of my mom, who grew up in Fresno CA in the 1950's. Big, starched petticoats were in style, and she had a small but tall closet. She rigged up a pulley system so she could hoist those skirts up towards the ceiling, out of the way of the rest of her clothing.

    And she says she has no interest in fashion ;) Happy Friday Alison!! steph

  3. It’s appropriate time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I wish to suggest you few interesting things or advice. Perhaps you could write next articles referring to this article. I desire to read even more things about it! loft conversions twickenham
