Would you email me off-line by clicking on the "my page" link next to my name on this post. Your comment on the monthly "how is your build progressing" thread about your master closet having a supporting wall down the middle doesn't make sense to me. I have a similar staircase with DH's office fitted under the upper flight of stairs much as your closet is. We don't have a "supporting wall" blocking any portion of the office. Maybe I can hunt up some pics of our framing to help your builder fix yours. But I want to see that I'm understanding the problem first.
