Considering designing a pedalboard with a 19 inch 1U space rack either underneath or in a top shelf. Any ideas?

One unit rack space? That is not much room.

How many pedals?

Maybe you should consider Fractal's Axe FX. That unit kills.

It will be a simple set-up with a TC Electronics Nova System and switch pedal with maybe 1 or 2 overdrive pedals. Not a huge footprint.

I think SKB used to make one just like that, maybe it was a couple units - IIRC there was room for a couple unites in there.

The Nova System is 3.5" tall and is too tall for a 1u rack space which is 1.75"

I was thinking the Peavey Rockmaster preamp would be underneath the pedalboard and the Nova System sitting on top of a platform (The top of the pedalboard being the platform). A slight lip in front of the platform to keep me from accidentally kicking or changing the controls of the Rockmaster and enough room on the aft end for power strip/surge protector.

Most pedals won't fit in 1U space. (as mentioned).
