This example shows two versions of a remodel using existing attic space. 
First plan involves less re-work of the roof, but does not gain as much space as the second more complicated roof remodel.

If a 36" wide staircase is built, you may want to consider using a shallower pantry.  I showed both a 24" and a 15".  You could just go with an 18", that might be a good compromise. 
Having a less deep pantry will open up the area as you go from the foyer into the stair/kitchen area
