Under Staircase Bar - Do-able?


Like most home projects, my wife saw an idea from Pintrest and thinks we must have this.

The idea is to put a cabinet, wine fridge, and counter top under our basement stairs. Sounds cool and looks cool. Right now we just have a little storage closet under the stairs.

My problem is that we have a couple 2x4s that would have to be removed in order for this project to happen. I'm not sure if theses are load baring or if they can be removed. To me they seem like they would be holding up the landing.

Thanks for any input.

I'm sorry but I can't make heads or tails of this
I can't study the pictures when they sideways.

Perhaps a picture of what you would like it to look like.

This 34 wide x 45 deep area could have been a small bar but we opted for a desk for the kids to study. Didn't know at the time they didn't need to study.

I looks like the post that the door is hinged to is holding up a landing.
If that is right, you would not be able to remove the post.

Yeah I'm 90% sure thats the post holding up the landing. I think we are just going to put a little wine fridge with counter top in the door way of the closet and just have a little are. Thank you for your help.

Are you giving up already. If you look at the photo in post 4 that post is there, there is room for a counter inside and the bar fridge built in on the other side of the post.


Sink would a be a question or a bunch of questions about the plumbing you have.

Yeah we are thinking of doing something similar to that. there will be no sink. And we will try to incorporate the post as a wine rack.

I can't believe that there's nobody here that can turn these pictures right-side up.?

A few more pictures showing the entire area with some measurements would really help, it may get you close to what you want.
