one of the things that makes me happiest about my new (well, now a year old!) house is the built-in bookcases we installed. i love books and i love displaying them for other people to enjoy. the only drawback is how tall my bookcases are since they reach my ceiling which at the highest pitch is about 13 feet tall. so i’m considering installing a library ladder — which i have always wanted, too. i’ve seen a few out there and i love the ones that roll. i’m not sure i have enough space for that, but i’ve seen these library ladder kits you can build which seem very cool, as well as these and these that you can customize to fit your needs. it might be also fun to find something vintage that i could repurpose — so i’m on the hunt for those too. my very own stairway to heaven!
