Default Storage space with custom rom

Sorry this is probably a stupid question, but it's bugging me. I never really paid attention to it because I've always had an ext sd. I have an lg g2 with 32 gb of storage. I know the os takes up around 8 gb, but when I flash a new rom it still shows available storage as 24 gb. Can I ever get that 8 gb back, or is it forever locked up in the stock os?

The 8gb is reserved for system. No way to unlock it.

i thinks that space is already reserved for OS and cannot be used as user space
