Alternating Tread Stairs
I´m pretty sure it may work... maybe you can take the mechanical parts of a regular pull down ladder and adapt this design... I think the problem will be about the space you need... the size may be as much as the double compared to a regular pull down ladder... so you have to make sure the hole in the roof must have the right space.Instead of having steps of 4 inches...like in a regular pull down ladder... you need at least 8 inches for this design to work safely.Hope you try it!
Do you think the premise of these stairs could be build to be used as an unfolding attic stairway? I've got to get a safer way up to that area after falling off a ladder. And a standard pull down ladder isn't the way I want to go. I'd like to be able to descend from the attic forward facing and I don't really have the space to do much more than this anyway. Anyone ever build an attic pulldown stairway?
