Molly the Westie found out she was going to be a big sister to a little human so I decided to build her a room of her own under the stairs before the baby arrived. Nothing existed there before, it was walled-in. I wasn’t sure how big the space was, or if it would even be possible, so was very happy with the end result… as was Molly!
She is the best wee dog who had been very spoiled up to this point, so we didn’t want her to feel less important when the baby arrived!
Starting point… I thought there might be dead space behind the stairs, but wasn’t sure. Trying to sneak a look
If it was going to work I also needed to move the wiring for the house alarm system. Decided to update the kitchen at the same time, by adding tongue & groove panels
Most importantly… don’t want Molly to be scared of the space, so in for an early look. Definitely going to be big enough!
