Storage under stairs


I'm trying to figure out a storage system for under a stairway. The only access is from directly behind it , through a door. 24" wide .so its sort of like reaching into the corner of a triangle. This is a hard one

A series of roll out bins, reducing in size as you go in. They shouldn't be any deeper then the space you have outside the closet.

Storage under stairs


Also remember that accessible spaces under stairs in areas that are finished must be sheetrocked. The IRC code requires that for fire protection. If the space is not accessable for storage then no rock is required.
