It can often seem as though closet space is at a premium. Here, I built a 6 foot wide by 2 foot deep closet above the garage to hold an upstairs washer and dryer. An engineer was hired to draw up the plans and I built it to those specifications. The post at the Garage stairs is to support the end of the Laminated Beam that holds the weight of the Washer and Dryer. I also rebuilt the garage steps so that they would be deeper per request of the Homeowner.
