Hi, Judi, & glad you came out of lurker mode. :) I've bashed my Pierce stairway and moved it, but I'm thinking if I were to substitute a real staircase for the ladder, I'd run it along the bathroom wall. It would be a little bit steep, but often stairs in the upper reaches of old houses are very steep.

Hi Judi and welcome.

I am working on a Pierce now and was trying to figure out how to make a drop down ladder. I have seen a couple of builds with trap doors, but I think the "pull down" stairs or ladder concept would be kind of cool if I can pull it off. I am going to start by reversing the small partition wall by the second floor bath and work it from there.

One of our members sent me his spiral stair kit to build and then we moved 200 miles to a new house with no workroom; but once I get workspace and get the second floor installed I intend to put in the spiral stairway as the next flight.
