It's a closet! (or will be soon)

The current home improvement project is a closet -- we got it framed in last weekend. The corner you see here is in our bedroom, where the wall jogs around the stairs on the way to the bathroom. This is really wasted space. I guess you could have an entertainment center or something there; we had a desk (now in the living room), but a closet will be a better use of the floorspace.

If we'd been thinking about it when the house was being built, we'd have suggested that the builder add a closet there, and he probably would have done so for free and adjusted his blueprints for future houses (as he did with our pantry suggestion, which he thought was pretty neat) -- but it didn't occur to us at the time, so, eight years later, we're doing it ourselves.

As you can see in the pic on the right, K is using a pocket door instead of a door on hinges. Neat idea; pocket doors are nice.

Next: installing the electrical stuff (overhead light & lightswitch), then drywall, paint, trim. But not this weekend -- I'm recovering from a nasty cold which gave me a sinus infection, and am still pretty much out of it.
