    That's awesome.
    If I may suggest, by adding small dividers that just sit on top of the carpet between the bigger boxes, you can have 2 additional shallower boxes.

    Maybe get a little curious and see how much deeper you can go safely under any of the three bins in the floorboard? Would be nice place for a cold brew ea. Oops I forgot I'm just close to Canada. :drunk:
