Sean Yashar's Think Pad
This is amazing!! How was this done? Love to know!
You'd either have to build the whole wall out, or you'd have to remove the drywall or plaster & lath from between two studs and add shelves, then refinish all surfaces. Either way, it's involved. (And hacking into an exterior wall isn't a good idea in colder climates because you'd have to get rid of the insulation.)Also, this won't work so well in most construction because most walls are only 4" to 6" thick. Masonry walls are thicker---but then you're dealing with masonry. They kind of have to be made with niches to begin with. So in short, it's a great look, but one that's hard to retrofit. (Unless I'm missing something here, which is entirely possible.)
I have the perfect spot in my home where I want this done -- in our refinished attic space, there are nooks in between the drywall and the roofline. I need to find someone to do this for me!
Wouldn't seem very practical in a hot climate either insulation wise. Maybe this is in a tropical climate where the house remains open most of the time or they have massively thick walls.
Got a tip, home tour, or other story our readers should see?
