    Why didn’t you install the shoe unit on the wall with the nitch?

    Awesome makeover, and really cool shoe rack! Also NJB mention, woo!

  4. muhammad amir on July 11, 2023 at 3:32 pm

    Your video editing is splendid. I can say a lot of improvement compared to your first few videos. Awesome!

  5. Ratchetto Gee on July 11, 2023 at 3:34 pm

    daniel is amazing. he is architect, designer, and carpenter all at once

  6. SaraSmiles on July 11, 2023 at 3:34 pm

    Love the editing style in this! So much more fun than simply filming what you do 😊

  7. Raymond & Adella Batten on July 11, 2023 at 3:41 pm

    Great video

  8. Ramon Balthazar on July 11, 2023 at 3:41 pm

    This is absolutely brilliant! 👏
    How did you make the handles??
    My entryway looks a lot like yours and I’ll shamelessly just gonna copy everything you did! 🤣
    Also, this video was a joy to watch, more of this please!

  9. therealshard on July 11, 2023 at 3:42 pm

    REALLY love this video’s style! The raw clips and being in on the action is very nice to watch

  10. mochipii on July 11, 2023 at 3:43 pm

    Please tell me that mirror above the shoe cabinet isn’t directly facing the front door.

  11. MT on July 11, 2023 at 3:46 pm

    thats a great idea and gives a warm look as well,……. as long as you dont buy more shoes!😎. We are trying to downsize our stuff…1. trainers, 2. business formal, 3. daily walk boots and 4. flipflops.

  12. Mason R on July 11, 2023 at 3:46 pm

    For entryways, don’t understand the power of the coat rack (coat tree). This should be used only for coats/jackets and nothing else. Opening a closet to store a coat is less than optimal in my opinion. Since coats are a liminal item, which are the items that need to live in an entryway space. Even if it is a wall hook for the coat you are always using, it saves the hassle of finding it in a closet.

    A coat rack, a shoe rack that doubles as a table for bags, a drip tray for recently worn shoes, and some kind of seating is perfect. Above the table/shoe rack a picture ledge for Mail, and keys. A liminal space, with liminal objects.

    Keep what you need, where you need them.

  13. Marta St on July 11, 2023 at 3:49 pm

    If you will need more space in closet, can you also built a cabinet for the recycle bins? Opened same way as the shoes cabinet?

  14. Letty “Guerra girl” Bills on July 11, 2023 at 3:49 pm

    Love this!! And it’s short !!

    sometimes, little things make a big difference! ❤️

  17. T S on July 11, 2023 at 3:51 pm

    Cool tshirt! I like the fit. Where is it from, please? Looks like MUJI.

    Glad to see the Not Just Bikes shoutout 🙂

  20. Zella Laing on July 11, 2023 at 3:59 pm

    I thought you were going to put the shoe storage on the alcove bit.

  21. YtubeChannel on July 11, 2023 at 3:59 pm

    I would have put it in the niche in the wall. So it would occupy less space. You could also stack one above the other to have even more storage.

  22. Alex Demirov on July 11, 2023 at 4:00 pm

    ok, but how does it look from the front, when you enter the apartment
    I honestly thought you’d put it in the nook right after the entryway, and put a nice piece of art in front of the door, so its the first thing you see when you enter

  23. Stéphanie Labbé on July 11, 2023 at 4:01 pm

    Hi Daniel… love all your video. We are looking for door handle for our home. I really love your door entrance handle. Can you share the model and band with us? It would be awesome!!! Keep doing your great work! 🙂

  24. Vincent Chau on July 11, 2023 at 4:01 pm

    For a minimalist, you have many pairs of shoes! 😂 just kidding. Love your educational videos.

  25. lollipop3105 on July 11, 2023 at 4:01 pm

    This editing is amazing! And I felt so soothed by the fact that we all face the same problems with our entryways and family clutter 😅

  26. Fynn on July 11, 2023 at 4:02 pm

    I like the new style. Well done!

  27. ceejay on July 11, 2023 at 4:02 pm

    The entry way is where a flourishing relationship can begin or end. Ok maybe not. It certainly impacts my experience in a home, ensuring people feel welcomed, comfortable and happy to come back again. This was some beautiful work. Well done. I could use some help with my place 👀

  28. Christopher Cisneros on July 11, 2023 at 4:04 pm

    The way your videos have been progressing and your channel in general is very inspiring.

  29. Mike Donovan on July 11, 2023 at 4:04 pm

    It’s appreciated that you are using your own living space for this endeavour, which makes it more "real".

  30. Kit on July 11, 2023 at 4:05 pm

    My ikea shoe storage is the same but Herne’s version. Drives me mad because the kids shove shoes in it and the doors now don’t close properly and idk how to fix it 😖

  31. ryan soo on July 11, 2023 at 4:06 pm

    Why didn’t you install the cabinet in that little recessed jog in the entryway wall? As it is now, it sticks out in front of the bathroom door.

  32. Eru Ilúvatar on July 11, 2023 at 4:06 pm

    Hi Daniel, super random question. How did you manage to fit Rodeby on the Stall cabinet? When trying to fit it in the length of the doors I have to cut a wooden piece in two for it not to be too big! Hope you can help, loved your video 😊

  33. Jona P on July 11, 2023 at 4:07 pm

    Where on earth do you store that enormous saw? (Nice hall now!)

  34. Mayank Jairaj on July 11, 2023 at 4:08 pm

    wth omg ty Daniel for the Hindi Subs!

  35. Simply Luvly on July 11, 2023 at 4:09 pm

    Great idea of shoe rack in entry way.

  36. Carlo G M on July 11, 2023 at 4:10 pm

    I really like this "vlog" style of videos. Keep them coming!

  37. Rob Kalani on July 11, 2023 at 4:11 pm

    Sometimes I watch Daniel’s videos just to hear him speak.

  38. xnejox on July 11, 2023 at 4:11 pm

    titch, it’s LA TOULETTE and this is the canoeist video you made so far!
    but, as always, the end result is worth it!

  39. Mike Wat on July 11, 2023 at 4:11 pm

    Daniel, I LOVED the way you filmed this, it incorporated a vlog style and man, you made the BUILD process something very fun to watch!!

  40. Elena Rudeva on July 11, 2023 at 4:12 pm

    I really like this format! So personal – I can easily relate to that 🙂 Thank you for this video, helped me decide to finally get a shoe cabinet for my narrow hallway.

  41. TheJojo01902 on July 11, 2023 at 4:15 pm

    An elegant solution! Pro tip for IKEA bags of little parts: take the time at the start to sort them all carefully by size and type on a fluffy towel (prevents rolling around). That way, when you need a part or widget, you can find it easily. This step can save much time and avoid frustration.

  42. Sam Watson on July 11, 2023 at 4:17 pm

    Love love love❤

  43. robotmuseum on July 11, 2023 at 4:17 pm

    Where did you use your mitre saw and where is that stored in a tiny Vancouver apartment?

  44. Andrenvoyage on July 11, 2023 at 4:22 pm

    Love the new style! More informal and dynamic!

  45. anne-marie biorci on July 11, 2023 at 4:24 pm


  46. Les Kay on July 11, 2023 at 4:26 pm

    What do you do when you have floor base board heating units? How do we find someone like you????

  47. Urša on July 11, 2023 at 4:26 pm


  48. DAXimus on July 11, 2023 at 4:28 pm

    So good. I love that mirror. Which one is it?

  49. Nicole Rivière on July 11, 2023 at 4:30 pm

    I love it!
