Can you tell me more about this ladder? Where was it made?
It looks like it is made of iron pipe, elbos, etc commonly used for gas plumbing...is that right?? Also, how does it connect at the top?
how do you descend? looking back?
Yes, the railing was made from standard pipe railing & connectors, available at any home improvement store. At the top, the handrail turns downward and terminates into the ladder. We'll post a detail photo that shows the connection soon!

Nice loft, attic space. Monastic overtones...
Loft ladder. A lofted space like this has tons of potential — extra room for the kids, a spare office area or just helpful storage. Whatever you end up using a loft for, make sure the access is safe and attractive. Tip: Loft ladders should have hand rails at the top for safety— the recommended length
length of the top rail is 24 inches. Check the building regulations in your area and confirm with your loft ladder manufacturer before ordering.
