I’ll take the elevator.

I’ve seen this new take on getting from one level in a house to the next, and wondered, “Why?”. The last photo shows what the stairs replaced, and the area they use: not much more than a ladder. Do they use less space than conventional stairs would use? How can that be? Maybe the pitch is extreme. This much I know, our town building inspector would NEVER give it a green light!

I imagine they’d take a lot of getting used to. Anyone out there tried them?

A person would have to cut down in his drinking if he lived in a house with those stairs.
