I've always wanted a ladder that wouldn't take up a lot of floor space. This is perfect! Where can I get one? Or if it is custom made -- where can I get the hardware?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

In or Out? A lot of people immediately dismiss owning a library ladder because they’ve seen them sticking into the space, becoming a tripping hazard when not in use. However, many are unaware that most ladder manufacturers offer mechanisms to push the ladder snugly against the wall or cabinetry, like in this kitchen, designed by Tim Barber. Barber wall mounted this Alaco ladder system to drywall with 2-inch by 4-inch blocking behind it, and it couldn’t work better in this narrow passageway. Alaco manufactures an upper slide-bar assembly for its ladders to achieve this vertical solution.
