Great bench/storage. Is it possible to get blueprints, or building instruction?

Is it possible to explain just the basic framework? Thanks for the quick response.

MDF fronts, covered with beadboard. Internal framing is just 2x4s. Any exposed framing is solid poplar lumber. Lids are plywood (can't remember if I edgebanded them or not) Seat back is plywood with poplar frame/trim. Baseboard of room is run around the benches to tie them into the room.

Bench seat - I was thinking of doing this in my kitchen remodel as I have a bay window. Why do they have blue tape hanging from light fixture? Is it to center table? Doesn't look like it would be center, looks too close to bench. Thoughts?

That funny any suggestion for me as I move forward on this. How high should the bench be? Is it hard to measure so you are sitting at right height for table?

Height needs to leave clearance for knees under table, yes. Somewhere around 18-20 inches, minus thickness of any cushion (not full thickness, but squashed thickness). Need to make sure there's room for the back under the window stool (sill) or possibly under the casing. Back might be another 16 inches or so.
