Once the freezer has defrosted, clean all surfaces, including shelves and storage drawers with a cloth and soap or detergent. Dry everything to prevent mold growth during transportation.

Remove all racks, shelves, drawers and storage bins or fíjalas to the sides of the refrigerator or freezer with tape to make sure it will not come off or break during the move.

Keep the cord out of the way with tape to the back of the unit.

Creating Storage Space

We have one of those Enclosed "sun rooms"!
18x10.5ish, drop ceiling with tiles, Commercial lights.
It appears that its a Slab foundation that was added on in the 80's. The house was built in 1930 , and is considered a Bungalow, and on the historical Registry.
Walls are Paneled and have already been painted, and the Flooring replaced with textured 13" tile 5 years ago.
So what Im wanting to do is create a close space at one end of the room. It would be 10 foot wide though and narrow in depth.
Question is, should we frame up a wall, drywall around and put up some sliding or paneled doors, and use those wire racks on the walls, or build actual shelves?...
