on the right of the staircase it looks like it's open, is it going downstairs as well?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Karen Egly-Thompson added this to Must-Know Furniture: The Grandfather Clock
One thing to keep in mind if you inset your clock is that you’ll need to access it for maintenance. Some clocks are made with access panels on the sides, which would make it difficult, if not impossible to service. So be sure to check the particulars of your clock before proceeding.
