A customer for whom I was doing other work just had a master closet done by a big closet company out here in California. Very nice, clean installation of about $500 of DIY-level shelves and drawers, for which the homeowner paid $4500. I remember those guys being serious competitors in the custom closet market, doing nice custom work, not just screwing paper-covered particleboard to the wall. Am I mis-remembering?

One of my customers recently had one done. Everything was laminated 5/4's with real wood drawer fronts. But I don't know the cost. They might have given her the cheapest materials without her knowledge or that's the option she chose.

I've never seen one installed with DIY materials as you describe for that amount of $$.

The closet companies are out there, some have merged operations. The one supplier I use now manufactures in MI. just adds 1 day for shipping. As I get older its very good money for nice clean work in a large air conditioned closet.

Thats who I use also, I usually let them deign it or bring customers to their showroom here.

CA closets is big around here. Looks nice.
I do several a year. Usually costs more than $500 for materials unless someone wants it to be strictly utilitarian.
$500 doesn't go real far for closet organization. IKEA PAX costs like that much for two of them with some options. Closetmaid or some HD stuff might get you a closet's worth of stuff for $500.
