This space is created by opening the space between the studs in the wall. Small, skinny spot, but look at all of the fabulous storage with small pantry items that take forever to find - a great idea to steal space and have a big impact.
This was taken during a ski trip this past weekend. It is a "treehouse" that the owner of the home built to enjoy the breathtaking views of the mountains surrounding his house. There was a nice sunset that night that I tried to catch in the windows of the treehouse.
