    I want to build a wall 600mm in from the RSJ but also want access to behind it.

    It needs to look good enough to be in an occasionally used room that would want to look like a bedroom if we ever sell the house.

    Any ideas on what to do? Maybe panels on with magnets? And would 2x2 be ok for framing it at 1.0mtr high?

    Couple of mdf panels, maybe hinged to floor?
    Easily decorated , smooth surface .Or for better storage use a few wedge shaped Mdf units on fixed castor to wheel in and out of eaves .

    Something wedge shaped would be good. A book shelf looking thing that I could pull out once a year?

    This kind of thing modified should work.
