Hola! Where does the time go, Geez Louise! Half summer is already gone, and I am first now updating this from last December, tsk tsk. Bad Jan! So, been busy puttering around the yard, as always, and paying more attention than I probably should be to politics. The kitchen "remodel" is on hold due to budgetary constraints, but I hope to have that remedied before the end of the year. And I have yet to paint the guest room - it's only been 3 years now since I moved in to this version of Maison Newton, I'm not lazy or anything, nope... LOL! Take care and have a great rest of the summer. Jan

Storage in Stairs and Stairwells

Hola darlings!

Right now I'm in the throes of watching the U.S. Women's Chess Chamionship and exciting it is, indeed!  Only two more games to go and I've got the live coverage on right now on my other lap top and listening/watching even as I'm working on this old trust Toshiba. 

I didn't want you to think I'd fallen off the end of the world.  I saw this article the other day at Yahoo and really enjoyed it.  Over the years I have seen ideas on utilizing space underneath stair wells - often involving creating an office space or cozy reading nook with built-in seating and shelving, or shelving and cushy wing chair with footstool, but this article really opened up my eyes to many different possibilities, most of which I just cannot imagine would meet United States building code requirements (no railings, too steep a pitch of step to stair ratio). Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.  For the creative D-I-Yers, or those who can afford to hire professional help, any of these ideas can be adapted to your own homes.
