Recessed shelves that drop down through the ceiling
I saw an interesting solution to storage problems on a home improvement show the other day. They framed recessed shelves that were designed to drop down from the ceiling. When not in use the shelving structure would raise into the attic between the ceiling joists and the base would be flush with the ceiling. To lower the unit, they used a garage door opener that would lower the unit down through the ceiling so that you could get to the shelves. Has anyone ever seen anything like this? I would like to duplicate it but without the garage door opener which seems like a rather chincy design. Thx.
