*Do you offer plans with metric units? All of our plans are in inches. Because every country offers different wood sizes, we cannot make a standard plan using metric units. What we do instead is provide the SketchUp file as a free bonus and a video on how to use the tape measure tool in the free version of SketchUp to convert each piece to mm or cm without any math. You can then make any necessary adjustments to the plans based on what wood sizes are available for you.

Can I adjust the dimensions of this project to better fit my space? Yes! That’s the beauty of DIY: being able to customize plans to your exact dimensions and design. We’ve included the SketchUp file as a free bonus to these printable plans, meaning you can adjust the dimensions in SketchUp and actually visualize how they will look before you start building. SketchUp is also a great way to double-check that you’ve made all your adjustments correctly ;) 

If you want more guidance on how to adjust the dimensions with or without SketchUp, check out our “How To Adjust Dimensions of Existing Plans” Masterclass

PLEASE NOTE: This is a digital product. Nothing physical will be shipped to you. Ensure your email address is correctly entered on the checkout page. PDF download and SketchUp file will be delivered via the provided email address. 

All measurements are standard (aka feet and inches), NOT metric.

First time buyer

This was my first time trying one of Zoe's plans and it was great. I definitely messed up drilling the dowel holes the first time (making the template was a little confusing). I accidentally drilled out the side of the 1x2 - but I was able to make a new side without having to buy more wood! The finished product looks great. I opted for a flat poplar plywood instead of bead board on the inside and it worked great. Magnets ended up being more expensive than I expected and the room for error was very small - so, I would recommend using a plate like they mentioned in the instructions. I purchased 5 feet of chain and it ended up being perfect. I decided to use monkey hooks and D rings (and one command strip to prevent bumping the wall) to hang the drying rack above my washer and dryer. I wasn't going into studs so that was the best solution I could come up with. So glad I took on this project! Took me about 3 days from start to finish.

Hi Allie! I'm so glad you enjoyed the plans and that your finished drying rack came out great! Thanks for letting us know that the template step could use a little re-working. We'll look at it to see if we can make it more clear for those tackling the plans going forward.
