In my continuing pursuit of gutting this house and trying to better it; the snow has finally broken and its time to get back to work.
We really, REALLY, want to use the attic space as storage / den / office space.
We've finally come to the conclusion to use the spare room's closet as the space for a staircase to the attic. its an insignificant space (
I just took a rough measurement of the closet - total run: 4 feet 4 inches (inside stud to inside stud) and a total rise: 7 feet 6 inches (floor to finished ceiling)
Is it possible to put a staircase in this space? there is 1 other space i can use to put the staircase, but i'd rather not - it would put the staircase in the middle of the attic, in our opinion, cutting the space up there too much.
I've tried online calculators - i haven't found one (or dont understand how to) enter in the total run. i know the space is small compared to how big the main staircase is in the house. It must be possible.
And I'd rather not use a ceiling ladder.
