Closet / storage under eve

When we had our roof redone,the pitch of the house was changed. It allowed us to change what was once our attic into a 2nd floor. (Unfinished )Our ranch is now a cape.

We have added stairs and pipeing for our second bath . It is 15 x 40.

I would like to add storage under the eve. A lg closet. But I am not sure how to go about it.

Anyhelp will be appreciated.

Re: Closet / storage under eve

You would pick a side and just put in a new wall up to the rafters. It wouldn't be a tall closet but you could put in the wall, leave some door openings or build it for a sliding door. You'd need a back wall inside the closet too so you could put in shelving for additional storage.

A hanging closet would require you to move the wall out, closer to the peak in the room, to make the ceiling taller. You have several options, depending on what you want to store.
