The most important thing to think about here, would be the safety aspect now, and down the road.
If it got damaged in this wee car or even on a truck,
and propped up by other methods, probably very likely to happen, with some designs....
it could be a dangerous affair!
Price that into the list, I mean by that
in, maybe refusing to agree with the clients design, and not doing it the cheapest way possible...
He could have his own ideas by now to add to the mix. :P

Panel the walls in oak and make a stained pine light weight free standing one for taking out on a Sunday drive.

He wants it to stand on top of the carpet?

There's a time you have to laugh, put a hand on his shoulder, and tell him he's mad as a cut snake.

1-2lbs and 10.5lbs respectively... don't ask how I know!

"It'll only need to be taken down and moved once or twice in its lifetime, between two houses that are confirmed as built to the same design and measurements", apparently...

I've asked if his sister, who still lives in SA, can go back to this miracle house from 1982 where he saw it and take photos if the bloody thing is still standing!! :roll:

Might a bit of research on exhibition stands or similar be fruitful Tasky? Bit left field but you never know. Google a few specialist providers to trade. Might pick up an idea or two.

TBH, I think this will end up just being half-height cabinets with some kind of load-bearing backing.
