Curious about the age and history of this house? I've seen a stairway this small once before, and was told in older settlers home stairs were made this small to keep enemies from being able to come up the stairs except 1 at time... when was this home built?

Thank you for reporting this. Undo

Actually, original old cottages were small because a) people were smaller, and b) everything was built by the homeowner's family themselves using materials they harvested and gathered themselves - so the less wood and stone, the better...
...plus smaller homes were uninsulated and far easier to keep warm from a single fireplace in the dead of winter - and easier to clean out in the springtime when the family needed to be out working the fields.

can you tell me the width and depth of stairs and floor space? - need to build very narrow stairs to attic and do not have much space. I also request the measurement of floor space needed... thanks so much for your help... we have an old farmhouse with very limited floor space

Do you have a side view picture? - Would like to build this type of stairs to my attic in my garage and would like to see how the weight is handled, is it carried in the attic or under the stairs.
