Evergreen Drive

This Marin County project was constructed on a fast-track schedule. Design decisions and construction had to occur jointly in order to maintain aggressive critical-path deadlines. In order to ensure milestones were met, subcontractors, deliveries, and inspections were closely managed with clear communications between architect, designer, owner, and contractor.

Where can I get the ladder? - I just added a small loft in my study, but have not decided on what to use to access it. Mostly, because I have no idea where to find specialty ladders such as these.

What is the upper area used for? How did these stairs pass inspections?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The ladder leads to a lounge and media center for the son. One of its rungs supports the desk. A lower portion of the desk swings out for more workspace. When it's no longer needed, the extension can tuck back under the upper portion (and become a great place to store a laptop or keyboard). Other rungs in the ladder were extended to create built-in bookshelves. The whole structure is made of steel to provide ample support while keeping the design minimal and open.
