I’ve been wondering for a while how many under stairs storage installations we’ve carried out over the last few years. It turns out, now I’ve finally got round to counting them all, that we’ve just passed the 50 mark. I guess this would seem like a modest number for…

Often when we install under stairs storage we supply the face panels finished with two coats of primer. The reason for this is that we cut them to neatly fit after the drawers are in place which risks marring any painted surface. Generally it is more cost effective for the new owner…

Our most recent project took us to Stroud which is a little further afield than normal. The under stairs space in this house is in the kitchen so I incorporated various food storage compartments and pull-out baskets. I worked out that the volume of the space is equivalent to…

It’s been a busy year to date with eight under stairs storage installations carried out so far as well as a few other projects. In my spare time I do a fair bit of cycling and have a very low-tech and scruffy indoor training setup at home (see photo)….

I have enjoyed designing, making and installing all of the under stairs storage that Sam and I have worked on this year. If I was pushed to pick a favourite though it might be this one in Totterdown. It just seemed to fit particularly nicely into the space despite the…

Sam and I have been working in an attic room this week. This is not something we plan to make a habit of but it is keeping us fit lugging tools and materials up and down two flights of stairs. The weather has been abysmal but a new pop-up gazebo has…

This week we’ve been in Redland installing a couple of big drawers and a cupboard with a workshop-made sloping coat rail (fits more things than a horizontal one). Rather than post pictures of the job though I thought I’d introduce my assistant instead! Sam has been working with me…

This week I installed a three drawer system in Portishead which features some adjustable/removable shelves for greater flexibility. The picture shows the three dimensional computer model that I produced before construction. This is a standard part of my design and quotation process which I carry out for free, showing…
