Making a Closet

Following Hurricane Irene, my heat pump stopped working. Thankfully, the good folks at my insurance company picked up the tab for a brand new Lenox pump, with an indoor heat exchange. Unfortunately, the new unit was about 4 inches deeper than the old unit, forcing the installers to rip off the front of my utility closet.

So with a few supplies from The Home Depot and some elbow grease, I managed to restore the closet to it’s previous design, plus about 4 inches more. I’m still waiting for two cabinet doors to arrive from eBay, but you can see much of the home improvement work in the gallery below.
