maybe you can do this for your house oaf? built-in storage in a loft space. I especially like the idea of shelves and drawers, but would need space to hang clothes too.maybe a custom/built-in wardrobe on the open end of the loft?
This is a perfect combo of my two favorite ideas for that space under the stairs leading to the basement. A reading nook AND book storage and shelves . assuming that there is enough space for this there.
