With the help from a closet organization professional, install a closet organizer.
On top of the organizational system, a 4 X 4 plywood platform loft is installed. Cut the 1 X 3 pieces of wood to size and make countersink holes where they will be screwed together.
Lay the pieces out and secure them with 1-5/8 inch screws (image 1). Once the cleat box is finished, add the plywood to create the base (image 2).
Make pilot holes in the platform. Screw the platform directly into the studs with a right angle impact driver and long extension bit.
Cover the face with 1/4" melamine for a nice finished look.
Attach a safety rail (image 1), and add a ladder to access the top (image 2).
