Green Home Tour 2009

Use the space under the stair for storage. Pantry style pull out shelving allows access behind standard depth bookcases.

Want to use your idea - I have a space in mud room that is 3x4x6 ft deep under stair case. That is a long depth and a lot of weight what did you use for tracking I found 200 lbs track. It needs to stay square so it slides back between wall and mounted shelf. And is their a hidden hand pull?

Love this idea and will be looking to do something similar. Are the two cabinets permanently connected? I'm trying to find quick release solutions so we can move the bookcase a side from time to time so we can access the utility meters under the stairs.

Hi -
yes - in this case they roll out as a single unit. They can probably roll out and away entirely - I don't recall any stops in the floor. Although I don't think that has been done.
