    ok well i've only just finished college i'm 19 and have been asked if i can price up a job for fitting a build in wardrobe this is something i have no idea how to do but none the less told them it wouldnt be a problem.
    can anyone either give me a link to a step by step guide or video on how to build wardrobes i dont know much details on the job yet but am assuming i'll need to build timber studs and mdf over the top, any tips and words of wisdom will be greatly appreciated thanks

    Who will need to build a stud frame, setting your stud work at 400mm centers.
    Here is a vid, that will give you a fair idea, they are using metal stud but you can use timber.
    The walls a plasterboard finished and tape jointed, you can do this or plaster instead of joint taping or being joiner you may consider having wood wall, that's likely to be a decision you client may want to discuss with you.
    hope this helps and good luck.

    Don't need studwork for a built-in. For a walk-in then maybe, but built in is just panels fixed together (usually).
    How big will it be and what material will it be made from? Finish/colour/paint?

    I based my post on this info, maybe a bit more clarity will be given, once you have seen the client and discussed what is wanted.

    Lots of choice for design, depends on space available and what finish is required. My bedroom has simple mdf panels dividing up the end of the bedroom with a variety of internal fixings, draws, hanging rail etc and then fronted with sliding doors.
