    We love it how it turned out. I may just need to make a little door. We gained a lot of space just by removing the fish tank, but with the steps and new shelving, we have a whole new pantry. Thanks everyone for the help

    Here is the finished steps. It worked out really well. We finished the project this weekend, added the counter to the cabinet and filled the pantry back up. Thank you for the help.

    Thank you. I think we were able to work something out, and will be cutting it out today. I am happy to have found help here. This is awesome.

    Thank you. I think we are arriving at something. I do not believe we can add the shelving at the far left side, as the riser is not 15" from the wall. The drawers going on the flat floor are 15" in depth.

    Would that mean that the tread would not be 10"? Can it be detrimental or dangerous in any way?

    We believe we can do it, so hopefully we will find a solution. I thought that perhaps we can make teh stringer out of 2x4. Just not as a continuous item. Thoughts?

    The pre-existing box had the paraphernalia for a fish tank and took most of the space. I got tired of it all, after 10 years and it is now gone. Correct, it is not a stairway, just steps to reach the top of the shelves, and the top of the other box. I think i will look for a carpenter and may...

    I thought about using the leftside as a built in shelf of sorts. I will place a cabinet at the "landing" area with drawers, and that will have a "counter" to run all the way to the wall. Then, shelves above. We thought about just having 2 of the stringers, and may go with that idea, after all.

    One step would be too little. The height for the stringer as shown is about 24". Then the bow on top goes another 26" and then there is a depth on the top of that box that is over 30". I want to make couple shelving on that back wall over the top box, hence me trying to get the step. Let me see...

    The stingers we placed them in there because there is where we would like to add steps. The incline show is the ceiling for the stairs to the basement, so this is above the ceiling. We could not cut the ceiling to make the floor bigger. We can only add the steps to gain better access to the top...

    I think the biggest concern here is to make it to code, but the odds are great and we may not be able to find a solution to that.

    A better view of the top box. There was an aquarium in there and took a hue amount of space in the pantry. We removed it all together and want to maximize the pantry. As we see it, we may have no option other than making our own stringer. Do you see the same? Thank you

    The box was where the new drywall was placed. And then there is the other "box" creating another step of sorts. We do not want to remove that other step.
