Yes. That's a bespoke furniture site and every staircase is different (going/angle, depth, height, etc) so you are pretty sure never to find an off the shelf kit. So it's either buy it in (and it's a job many joiners could and should be able to undertake) or do-it-yourself - which is where this site comes in. Basically it's a frame to carry the drawers which is front clad. The drawers are scaled-up box drawers on extra heavy runners. Depends on your skill set and equipment how much you could achieve.

OK, I'm an "old school" chippie, so please don't ask me to do a bodge job - I didn't bring my horse today and in any case you don't seem to have a hitching rail!

thanks for your reply, ill get some quotes found a few sites that specialise in under stair storage and go from there, I'm pretty good at DIY however done so many projects in the house as its coming near to the end I'm getting a bit tired of it.

So why not go in for a bit of DIY? At the end of the day it's all just a collection of boxes....
