A quick comment on the weight issue.  I concur with your calculation of
approx. 35lbs per box (letter size).  The issue is will the floor hold the
combined current weight and estimated growth weight of your records.  I went
through this issue some time ago and contacted an engineer.  The engineer
examined the architectural drawings and determined the floor could hold the
weight "if I distributed the weight accordingly".  In other words, I had the
shelving units configured and placed on the floor in a manner that wouldn't
put too much weight in one spot in different areas.  A last comment is good
records retention and disposition will keep your weight down as well.  Keep
smiling.
