for cost reasons, we kept it simple. I believe the contractor just used glue and finish nails or trimhead screws.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

There wasn't any money in the budget for an elaborate custom ladder for the loft. "We decided to use materials available from the local hardware store and left over from the rest of construction," says DeForest. This connected the ladder visually with the rest of the home, as the bright red plywood stringer was used in the cabinets, and the the region outdoors, as the treads were short pieces of the flooring salvaged from a nearby Amish farmhouse.
The house enjoys sweeping views of the landscape and is bathed in natural light thanks to the large, well-placed windows and the open floor plan. See the rest of this home
