    The price really depends on few different things. Is the space already open or does it require mayor reframing and dry walling? The space under this staircase was already open and there was nothing in the way of the installation. Another thing that will effect the price is the materials used for construction. Cases and drawers can be made out of particle board or plywood. For the doors I would recommend going with plywood, bamboo ply or solid wood. For proper raised panel doors wood is the only option. Because these kind of built ins are always custom, design and plan drafting needs to be added as well. Depending on all these factors the price can range from $4500 to upward of $10000.

    I might still have the original plans but they are specific to this staircase and most likely would not work at different site. I offer design and drafting services and could provide you with working drawings specific to your space and configuration. If you would like more information please email me at info@lipa.ca

If your home has a staircase, lucky you! That otherwise dead space underneath can become a storage bonanza with some careful planning. I would die for that slide-out coatrack and shoe bins. (Well, almost.)

And look at how handy it is to access all of that storage when it all slides right out instead of you having to crawl into that deep, dark closet.So tell us: What would you put in a secret compartment?More:Secret Passages and Hidden SpotsBlended Doors for Standout Style

This is a fabulous idea for under-stair storage. Consider during re-pitch of third-floor stairs.
