You need to make sure there is adequate support on the section that the built in is in. It also will take away from your basement stairs...if there is one.

If it's left open like that then you need to install 5/8 fire code drywall under the stairs before building it.

Staircase Storage Project

That's one of the first projects I did after we bought our house. We were able to leave the existing support members under the stairs, and built plywood cabinets to fit in the remaining space. The A/V gear is all under the stairs now, and the TV is built into the wall to maximize the amount of floor space available.
