stairs & bookcases

2008-02-21 19:14:34.301705+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

I could rip off this SE post wholesale, but instead I'll divvy it up into two sections. This one will address bookcases, specifically the Bookcase / stair combo pictured at the bottom of this post and repeated here. We've got 8½ foot ceilings, we're planning on built-ins, we don't want extra stuff to dust at the top, but getting to the upper shelves can be a challenge. In hindsight, the solution is obvious: Build the steps into the book cases.

Nicely done. Notice the "nautical/european" stairs meant for a specific left/right foot. Allows for an incredibly steep angle, Yet after you go up and down then a few times you'll find it quite comfortable. Found a lot in nice boats and RV's.
