“Long time local contractor, Stacey Ranieri, president of Ranieri Construction LLC, is experienced in remodeling staircases for understairs use. One of her recommended ideas incorporates the outdoors aspect of Mojave Desert living.
“We’ve been able to actually cut through the outside wall (of homes) and frame in a door,” said Ranieri. “People use that space for lawn and garden tool storage.”
Ranieri touts the utility of such understairs projects, as it can save homeowners from having to take up backyard square acreage with storage sheds or cluttering up garages. She also says that this scheme can be reversed to create additional interior walk-in closet space not found in original home blueprints.
