Hello. There is a small electric boiler in the crawlspace supplying hydronic radiant tubing in the joist space.

Loft ladder - 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??

The building code will generally allow for non-conforming stair (ladder) access to spaces that are less than 200 sf. You should confirm with your local code.

Hi, We have a sleeping loft in our cabin in Montana and would like to build a ladder pretty much exactly as this is shown. Do you have a specific plan/design for this ladder, or is it a matter of eye-balling it? We're going up 7'6", and the opening is 22.5". Thanks

Hello. Sorry, but the loft is actually a very small space - just big enough for a bed - and not enough to get a decent photo.

Hello- what is the total square footage? Also, could the hydronic radiant tubing and boiler be connected to solar panels instead of regular electricity?

The Lettered Cottage added this to Lodge Love: 7 Ways to Land the Look
The jagged stone and the smooth wood is such a pleasing combination in this home.
A sleeping loft: Having to climb a ladder is oh-so-Little House on the Prairie!
Laura Gaskill added this to What's Your Summer Home Style?
The cabin may be diminutive, but it is packed with smart features such as an open floor plan and loft bedroom. The high quality of workmanship shows in everything from the gleaming wood floors and beams to the jigsaw-like stone patio.See more of this small cabin
