We looked at a couple of new houses this weekend. One of them was amazing and I am going to go back and take pictures. The closet in the master bedroom had a 20 foot ceiling and there were shelves and bars all the way up. It was amazing. Of course there was no built in ladder. It wasn't completed yet, but I can't imagine it will go without one for long.
I often wish that I had a built in ladder in my kitchen because I can't reach any of the cabinets. We have little step stools all over the house actually. Four of the five people that live in this house are short! So when I saw this tutorial on DIY Showoff for a DIY Ladder I knew I had to share it:
I am pretty sure I would love having one of those in every room of my house. You can see how they made it HERE.
