There is a tiny space at the SE corner of the plan which is designated as a 1/2 bath/laundry/pantry area. Fortunately, there are 12 foot ceilings.
So the question is what are you going to store in your pantry? To my mind there are ¨Butlers´ Pantries¨ for storing crockery, glassware, etc., and usually equipped with a sink. And then there are pantries to store foodstuffs, drygoods, canned products, bulk items such as pastas and grains, and veggies like onions and potatoes.
I´ll have to keep in mind the amount of weight the walls will have to support. And temperature range, humidity and light exposure for food.
I like the baskets for bulky items.
I don´t think there will be room for enclosed cabinets, but I would love them.
Love these ladders!!
