I have been trying to figure out the code for loft space with respect to stairs vs ladders. Everything I've seen seems to indicate that if the space is "inhabitable"(coded by size ) then it must have stairs not ladder. How do you get around this??

I don't understand this question. Sorry. We have stairs, not a ladder.

Is that a standard height hand rail on the outside of the floaters? It is a beautiful staircase and so smart! - I can't tell from the photo if the wood on the outside is actually a handrail or simply decorative? Thanks in advance for any assistance.

As someone scared of heights I like the idea of railing! Thanks for your prompt response.

I love this staircase, how did you do them, can they handle much weight - We have a small house, we took four small rooms out of the front for living room and vaulted the ceiling and putting a loft bedroom above the kitchen and only other room in house not a lot of space for stairs these are perfect

Are these stairs suitable for a very small amount of space for stairs

Very interesting design. Can someone post a photo of the view of the stairs from the door?

Love this design! How much would this kind of design cost?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"Our style is all about mixing whites with wood to create a less stark and more organic feel," says Nieschlag. The entryway establishes the home's warm, organic modern style.
