Hook in thin wood - side hooks - How did you put the side hooks in? It looks like wood between lockers is only about inch thick so how did you attach the hooks on sides of each locker without nail poking through to other side?

Most staircase companies make rolling ladders/library ladders custom for the space you want. Here is the site of one.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to 10 Clever Ways to Maximize Space
Go vertical (with help from a ladder). These people could have stopped at coat-hook height, but instead they've gained miles of space by adding a ladder and upper cabinets and cubbies. If you don't want to bother with the built-in tall ladder, store a stepladder nearby. Yes, I do realize this closet is probably the same size as that entire Manhattan studio I mentioned earlier.
Natalie Myers added this to The Handsome Mud Room
Here's a more glamorous take on the traditional mudroom with nice detailing to make it for a luxurious feel. Perhaps you would find this in a town home. Closed cabinet doors and woven baskets for stowing away loose items. Two bright chandeliers for illuminating a small space. A ladder for reaching higher shelves adds a touch of unexpected appeal.
Natalie Myers added this to 12 Ways to Rethink the Ladder
I have shown this picture before, but I still admire how much glamour the ladder and chandeliers add to this mudroom. This combo would look equally compelling in a walk-in dressing room.
A mudroom off of the entry was designed for ultimate organization. Individual cubbies for each family member keeps things tidy, while a library ladder makes everything easy to access.
