I have a closet under the stairs with sliding doors. I’d like to build a cabinet with drawers and a wine rack on top, where the (drywall covered) under-stair slopes up at 45 degrees.
In one part of the closet, there is a “hatch” in the floor that gives access to the crawlspace, so I need that to be accessible. I’ve never had to access it, so it doesn’t have to available within seconds.
Is there a cabinet design that would accommodate this access to the floor? I’m OK with removing drawers and shelves to get into it, but most floor standing cabinets are on some kind of permanent “frame” of 2×4s supporting th e base, so that won’t work.
Hanging the cabinet from the wall is a possibility, perhaps with some legs on the front. Putting it on casters is also an option, though I consider that a last resort as I’d like to make full use of the space.
Finally, the closet is fairly deep. Is there practical guidance about how deep is too deep for sliding drawers? I’ve got about 30” of depth to work with.
