Hello folks i'm new to this forum and just looking for some guidance on building a wardrobe into an alcove. The width will be 1900mm and height of 2150mm. I'm just looking to have a basic built unit, full length shelf on the top with 4 door, underneath then 2 door each side one side with shelving and two hanging rows on the other side as its a kids bedroom won't need as much height for 2 hanging rows. I will add a couple of pictures of ideas I was planning one either with mdf sheets or the other with building a frame with 3x2s. Just would like some advice on which be easier for someone with basic skills, i'v most of the tools required including the table saw if I went with the mdf sheet option. If I went with the frame using 3x2s is it best nailing the uprights to the block wall or screwing them in? Which screws do people recommend to use is it the concerte screws or using raw plugs to attach the timber to the wall? Apologies for my lack of knowledge but intent on doing this task.

Can't see the pics, photobucket is not what it once was.

I'll read the 1st post again later, (got to catch the library now before it closes @17:00).

Please be patient. The people who answer questions here are volunteers who give advice in their spare time.

Posting the pictures here would help.
As ayjay says Photobucket no longer supports links to other sites.

Tried going to your pics by copying and pasting. Couldn't be found.

Screws will be better than nails. The actual fixings required will depend on the substrate you are fixing to.

3 x 3 might well be overkill for a childs wardrobe.

Unless you pay photobucket for the privilege they don't do 3rd party hosting any longer (cost me 12-15 hours re - hosting pictures in the past few weeks)

3x3 is a bit ott, find a timber yard you save a fortune of the likes of Wickes and B&Q,

Pilot drill, countersink and screw
