We are in the process of planning to finish our basement. For most of the basement the ceiling to floor height is 83 inches making it pretty doable for most items. The problem I am coming across is what to do for our planned bedroom closet.
The orange hash in the middle represents where the I-Beam and ducting runs. At this region the height is only 74 inches minimum. Most doors are 80 inches so I could trim it down to fit but are there other better methods to make it not look so odd?
In the layout, the orange is what exists currently, red is the plan so far, so any red can be modified.
My thoughts so far
My original thought was to put two sliding closet doors just in front of the low spot so that I can put the slider mechanism, and trim boards above the I beam. I could adjust the front closet wall to position the I beam / ducting to be inside the closet but don't want to loose too much room space.
