This stair runs from my garage/shop to our second floor all-purpose room. It is a secondary stair, the main stair being in our living area. We were faced with a shortage of storage for our canned goods. We had filled several shelves in one of our closets and several additional shelves that I built in the garage with canned produce from our garden. However, this season we ran out of shelf space and the freshly prepared canned goods were sitting on the dining room table without a home.
Rather than using up more floor and wall space by building more conventional shelving i came up with this idea. It doesn’t take up an once of floor space or wall space, it doesn’t encroach on the stairway, and you don’t need a step stool to reach the shelves. Everything is at eye level as you walk up the stairs. My wife love it.
Oh, all my garage/shop space is heated with radiant floor heat so freezing isn’t a problem. This was a quick solution to a pressing problem. It’s not pretty but it is very functional. Thanks for looking!!
