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?
Attic Bedroom Closet Design, Pictures, Remodel, Decor and Ideas - page 9 - sublime-decor. I have the perfect wall (with attic behind it) to do this. I've often thought of making an easily accessible closet there.
Love the pull out shelf idea -- been trying to figure out how to get a folding surface in my tiny laundry. Replace with single dual function unit and use the upper portion for laundry, Pull out sewing machine storage under table.
close up play room closet behind, utility room. open it like this to make laundry closet at the back door. Enclose the water heater. use space where w/d are now at right of door as a little built in seat for bags & coat hooks over it.
