Intro Real-estate agents know what pushes the buttons of most home buyers, and they know how to push them in the right order. In just about every house Ive ever looked at as a potential buyer, the agent has opened the front door and remarked, Wow, look at those beautiful oak floors, followed by, and you wont believe how much storage space there is in this house.

That says a lot about our quest for order. Most of us want a place for everything, and everything in its place. But just where are those places?

Every house, big or small, has unused nooks and crannies just waiting to work a little harder for you. Drawers in toe kicks under the cabinets, triangular lockers under a set of stairs, or spice racks recessed into the space between wall studs are just a few examples of putting neglected spaces to better use.

This book is a collection of articles from Fine Homebuilding that deal with creative storage solutions. Our authors, who are all professionals in their fields, take you along in their search for space in a range of real-world projects.

No more unused nooks and crannies to colonize? Building a Hutch will give you a chance to build something from scratch and tailor it to the details that look best in your house. Building a Window Seat, on the other hand, delivers a triumvirate of closet space, bench storage, and a serene place to curl up and read a book.

The ideas in this collection just might be enough to get that real estate agent to start the tour by saying, You wont believe how much storage space there is in this house, and get to the oak floors later.
