My sister recently moved into a very small one room house. The house has a small footprint but very tall ceilings so we settled on making 8ft tall shelves which doubled as a dividing wall between the “bedroom” and the “living room”. These shelves took a lot of time and went through three redesigns before they were finished.

They are made from salvaged wood paneling and have sawtooth shelf supports. Coincidentally I will never make sawtooth shelf supports again. Making all 32 of the supports was absolute hell from start to finish and I messed up the supports on the lower half of the shelves so I had to adjust them one by one with a chisel. The shelves are bolted to the bed so they do not topple over in the event of an earthquake.
