    Great build. Do you have any plans to this, though? As a novice DIYer I still need some stuff spelled out, and I'm sure others do too.

    Great use of space! How do the shelves work for a ladder? Are they pretty strong?

    Thanks! The shelf supports are very strong and each rung can comfortable hold three people's weight.
