ROOM UNDER A STAIR
This small home has a bedroom loft with a living and kitchen area below it, as well as a bath room, foyer and and utility area. There was no room left for an office.
By rebuilding the stairs with winders at the bottom, I created extra space for a built in desk and the custom book case.
It was constructed of yew wood and birch ply.
The stairs are yellow cedar with 2×4 hemlock treads…
As you can see from the reflection in the window, the room has a wonderful view of the pacific rain forest. The owners did not want a balustrade although it is usually required for safety.
As responsible citizens of the planet,
lets try to use only what we need to, and use it well.
As Gandhi said:
“The world has enough for everyone’s need, but
not enough for everyone’s greed.”
