I've gotten some great info from the forum and am happy to now be able to offer up some from my experience. In case anybody is looking for custom closets, I wanted to give a recommendation for Castle Closets. Almost 2 years ago we used them, I think after finding praise for them here. I spent a fair amount of time looking at our options (custom build with a contractor from solid wood, container store, etc.) and after using Castle would definitely recommend them to others.
Our brownstone doesn't really have closets so we used one of the 1/2 bedrooms (the kind a crib or desk can fit into) as a big walk-in closet. A rep came out and measured everything and discussed our storage needs then a few days later she emailed me a detailed design plan with some options. She did a great job maximizing the space in there for us. A few weeks later the installer came and put it all in without making a mess. Two years on and it's very sturdy but I think can be pretty easily removed if the next owner wanted to.
I've attached a photo (sorry for the poor quality image) to give you an idea what we got.
WOuld you mind sharing the cost? Thanks

I don't have the exact price on hand, but we paid probably around $1800. There's more compartments you can't really see in the photo that have a bunch of narrow (maybe 15 inches wide), small adjustable shelves on the ends, that are good for things like folded jeans or baskets for leggings, socks, etc.
