Billy goes under the ceiling

Materials: Billy

We have sloping ceiling on our mezzanine.
To make bookcases that fit, we used Billy, of course.
We bought 6 Billy, in different sizes and cut the pieces to fit.
Now the mezzanine is our library and my office, from where I blog and run my business.

Here I show you pictures from building it and if you want to see the full result follow the link.
