usually anything that changes your home's footprint will require a permit. The change will show up on a survey when you go to sell your home.

Thank you sooo much! We completed the job yesterday. Ended up using a piano hinge as the door is so heavy due to its size. The contractor didn't feel the other hinges I had ordered would support the door.

He kept the plywood top that "outlines" the lid and filled it with wood filler to make it smooth as it was already on when he saw the bow in the plywood lid. :( Hopefully the pattern will not come through, it looks smooth now. I have some soft close brackets on order that will hopefully protect my little guys fingers.

Thank you for all of your feedback on the MDF and hardware. If any of the hardware I went with fails, I will look into what you used. Again, I appreciate your insight. They are lucky to have someone with your expertise in your location.

one more question.. are you suggesting we put a stile on the left and right and also put a rail down the middle? You aren't suggesting to do anything at the bottom correct?

I didn,t do the floors. I am only a cabinet maker. However from my observations, the floor is oak but the stain I am not sure of!

I made the seem to be 3/16" when its closed. In person, it is really smooth looking. I also do think the lighting and the picture has a lot to do with the seem being so smooth as well! Thanks for the compliment.

How much? - How much would it cost for a custom-made window seat like this? Please give a range if it depends on material or whatever.

I love this storage and seating idea. I might try to use it across a wall instead of in front of a window.

Poplar would be my choice since it is painted. Harder than pine and sands, stains & paints well.

This window seat was custom built by me. I do custom cabinetry. Are you from the New York Metropolitan area? If so, then maybe we can discuss a project you would like to do? Let me know. Thanks!

I love these window seats, I had them in my old house and was a great storage for big bulky items. We're redoing a room that is. Ow basically

What Houzz contributors are saying:

For a more elegant look, try a natural fiber blend, like jute/chenille or sisal/wool. The rug under this couch looks like a sisal/wool blend, which provides the durability of sisal with the warmth and softness of wool.
Between Naps on the Porch added this to Tapping Into The Hidden Storage Space In Your Home
Do you have a bay window in your dining room, bedroom or family room? Consider adding a hinged window seat into the bay and have the seat hinged to take advantage of all that space inside. Or add drawers or doors for access to the storage without moving cushions. It's a great place to tuck away extra pillows and blankets.
A spot to stow away toys, extra blankets, and pillows in the living room made sense to many of us.
Natalie Myers added this to Dreamy Window Seats
Storage, storage, storage. Don't waste the space underneath the seat itself. This is great for storing winter blankets or toys.
A built-in window seat would be a very good storage spot for seasonal clothes or blankets.
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to 15 Ways to Design an Easy-Clean Home
11. Plan your storage carefully. Make use of every nook and cranny. I could do several ideabooks just on the topic of storage alone. But these two basic guidelines will help you plan storage that helps you clean up in a hurry.Put storage near the place where the items to be stored are actually used. This window seat storage is handy for holding extra lap blankets for the sofa. If this is a family room, games or toys might go in here. This would be much closer than a hall closet halfway across the house. Locate your most often used storage where it is easy to reach. Although cabinets or closets that run all the way to the ceiling do make use of space, if you have to drag a step stool out to put things away, it will slow you down. Save those high cabinets for items rarely used.
E.R. Miller added this to The Best Uses for a Bay Window
Storage that opens from the top is smart for families with little ones that they want to keep away from pullout drawers or cabinets, but the seat cushion will have to be removed for someone to get to the storage underneath. Storage accessed from the top also benefits those of us who tend to lose things at the backs of cabinets.
