Question

Building Obtuse-Angled Walls


I am about to begin construction of a new closet in our guest room. We have two options for the lay-out of the closet, but much prefer one for aesthetic reasons. Of course, it is the hardest of the two to construct due to obtuse angles. We have no idea how to frame out this closet so we can at least hang a bi-fold door in the door frame.

Any advice is GREATlY appreciated. We are totally out of our league with this particular part of the project.

I have attached a picture of our options laid out on the floor. We are aiming to do the one marked out in tape, because its definitely less obtrusive than a rectagular closet looming near the door. That door in the photo leads into the bathroom. A closet used to be there but we absorbed the space into the bathroom. The entrance to the room is off to the right of the picture.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for responding!

I can't seem to access the diagram you have linked though. Is it something I can find on Google?
