Okay, so it's not a wardrobe - but there is a huge amount of wasted space under the stairs. One thing that is guaranteed when you live on a boat - there is never enough storage space, so you have to make use of every available inch (or centimeter for you foreigners!). Pete is in the throws of creating a wonderful cupboard, complete with shelving to store stuff. The vacuum cleaner will live under there, along with things like the dehydrator that we don't use every day. The area goes under the deck and under the stairs. The door will be under the deck, to the side of the stairs, which means the other side of the stairs needs blocking off (is this making any sense). Rather than a blank wall, he is going to make a bookshelf out of it. Some of my cookery books will live here. I say some, as I actually have a few too many, but I enjoy reading them before I cook the beans on toast. Here are some pictures of the job half done and I will post some more later of the finished article.
