    @ smith & vansant architects PC - Nice!

    @ pleski - If you haven't already found someone, would be happy to make you a shipsladder similar to this. We specialize in stairways and wooden boats. We would build it in our shop in Seattle and then truck it to you for install.

    You can see some of our work on Houzz or our website at

    Good luck!

    Not sure what MPLS is - can you elaborate? However, this is not a code built stair, but there is a code compliant access to this loft.

Don't get hemmed in by space-hogging staircases. Ship-ladder-style stairs and spiral staircases are huge space savers. Just make sure you're within your local building code requirements.
