Matthew Maixner doesn’t like to carry his shoes up to his room. His dad, Mark, doesn’t like having shoes lying around. So Matthew dreamed up this solution and Mark executed it. Two drawer boxes fit between the stair stringers, and the stair riser acts as the drawer front. When the drawer is closed, you wouldn’t know it’s there. If you adopt Matthew’s idea, be sure to use self-closing slides. If not completely closed, the drawer could cause an ugly accident.
“This was my son’s idea and it works great. Now if we could just get him to clean his room…” — Mark Maixner
