French country armoire space on the wind helps free up space in the rest of the house. Finding a room under the roof foot for finishing a walk-in armoire or general storage space is possible in almost any home with standing rooms in the attic. You can finish the closet in a rustic way or give it a more polished look. Start with a general budget and design the closet around the amount you want to spend.
Measure the amount of room available for the French country armoire. Make the closet at least 27 inches deep to hang clothes. Draw a sketch of the wardrobe dimensions on the floor first. Define this area so that you can plan the doors around a few winds steps or fix any problems with windows on the wind. Nail armoire framing around the floor contours first. Install a 2-by-4-inch footplate around the wardrobe perimeter.
Draw the French country armoire outlines on the walls and creak chop so you can get the frame in place. Use 2-by-4 inch boards to create skeleton frame with studs located at 16-inch centers. Build the doorway for the type of doors you want to install, regardless of standard or bi-fold. Add breadboard as an easy option for the armoire’s exterior walls. Buy breadboard in 4 by 8 foot sheets and cut sections with a circular saw to cover the wardrobe. Cover sharp edges at the wardrobe corner with wood casting to give the closet’s exterior a smooth surface.
