Here is a picture of the finished product. The shelves and closet finished, loft shelving covered over, and the ladder and shelf screwed in place.
The biggest obstacle when working in the kitchen is thinking out our measurements in advance. For example, we have to build the frames so they meet just so, taking into account our fridge measurements, the windows and range, how far our countertop should hang over, the additional width of the plywood, and on top of all that, avoiding pipes and the like.
The cabinet doors are made the same way as the closet's, the last and final touch. Ta-da!
