If you are in the Mpls area, check Craigslist under "library ladder"

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.

locker dividers - Are you happy with the side walls that partially divide the panels? I'm thinking of doing similar and keep being told I wasting space? I think it will also help keeping it organized. thoughts?

Each client is different in their preferences. Some like individual cubbies, some prefer a larger, shared space so I don't think there's a 'right' answer. Each of these is 1'-4" wide. Thanks! - C&Co.

Measurements - Hi there, I'm trying to figure out if you have 5' lockers how much space you have for the shelf with the basket and the upper cabinets. Could you tell me this? If not, do you recall the ceiling height? I assume the bench is the standard 18" off the floor. Beautiful mud room!!

Yes, the bench is 18" off the floor. The lockers are approximately 4' tall and the shelf with the basket and the upper cabinets are both approximately 1'-3" tall. Thanks! -C&Co.

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.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: A Home Full of History and Surprise
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.

I love the lockers and the fun ladder! I would have the lockers with covered doors, so I don't see the items.
