Under Stairs Renovation

Just a small part of a whole house refurbishment by Soundhouse

client brief: remove old under stairs panelling and make maximum use of space.  Internally, a large shoe drawer, broom cupboard, hanging rail, coat and hat shelves and hooks etc

The property is one of the older Brighton houses dating probably from the mid 19th century and of course nothing was remotely square or straight. the staircase also needs a fair bit of propping to make it stable.

the old T&G panelling on the left, and then removed and the kitchen doorway blocked up.

     

Framework in place and a new newel post I had to turn on the lathe to match the one it was replacing. Also the old post had shunted forwards so I had to to pack the new one so that it would now be vertical

    

 

Solid Oak Drawers installed and fronts fitted
