Each stair is 8" high, and the footprint of the entire staircase is 3'x3'. This gives a total height of 5'4"... a bit hard to explain, but the next step will be up to a landing area with a closet for our clothes. The landing plus the stairs would span the width of the house (82"). Then, entry into the main loft with bed. The landing area would have a low ceiling underneath it, so there will be a utility room under it (to hold our climbing gear, etc), accessible from the outside.
#window treatment: really good idea splitting it in 2 pair of #curtains so to enhance the height of the #ceiling rather than the width of the window. And by using more fabric, covering the glass, it has also improved the sense of elegance
