In order to build all this stuff, I sort of came up with a dimensional system as far as capacity, role, and standard heights and depths for cabinets drawers and whatever. I guess I was inspired by the ikea kitchen systems that I've dealt with for years.

Having said that, I've given some thought to building these items in a modular fashion. I could probably build them economically for both parties (buyer and seller) I don't know if anyone else would want them though.

I started working out some of the parametric design elements in freecad so you can basically place item types you want, and then they will snap to the proper size or expand, duplicate or shrink for a given space.

Anyway nerd things.

I noticed your CAD drawings on earlier pictures. I haven't heard of freecad but I know Autocad and Vectorworks. They are great programs that can do a lot, but snapping and expanding to the proper size is awesome!

Hahahaha!!! ...and it IS cool!!

What he says is "If this works out well for me - I could offer it to you - you actually could afford it and I could make a little money off it!"

Aaron - keep it going! It most likely would be worth alone the time saved!
Let alone the system....!
