Intro: Turn an Empty Stairwell Into a Storage Loft
If you are in need of some more storage space and you've got an empty stairwell you can build yourself a loft and store all of your junk up there.
My apartment is big - it's one of those live/work johnnys that is just a big empty space. The down side is that we have very few closets, and as such, no real place to store things that we want to keep out of the way.
I kept looking at the space above our staircase that goes down to the front door and thinking "just look at all that wasted space!" One day we decided to make use of it and build a loft.
