If you ever wanted your own Orchard Ladder (it is a popular design element these days), why search high and low for the perfect size and condition only to find out that an antique market wants $250 for it. You can simply build your own.
Some might also consider this a “library ladder” and I suppose you could alter is slightly to become one. The orchard ladder has the cool taper in the shape that makes it stand out.
This plan comes from Remodelholic and they make it about as simple as it gets. The ladder is made from off the shelf materials and can be built rather quickly. Click on the link below for the free plans.
