Loft ladder - How did you get this to pass code inspection? 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??

It depends on your location and code ordinances. You will need to talk to your Architect and Builder to make sure that this will work in your home. Should you wish to hire our services we would be happy to assist you. Best, Markay Johnson Construction

Is the ladder difficult to climb at that angle? - We are near completion on a new house and have built a loft very similar to this one. It is a 9 ft climb to the entry of the loft. The ladder is positioned behind the door and will have to be fixed on an angle as steep as this one. Has this worked well for the children who use it?

What is at the top of the ladder? Is that a half size door/closet? Can't tell from the angle of the picture if it is full size or not. Just a small loft area, right? Love this!

I don't know the exact color of paint used. The door is a crawl space converted into storage and the door is smaller than a half door. Best, Markay Johnson Construction
