Small House with Attic Storage – Tewantin, Sunshine Coast 4565

Job: – To provide a safe and simple vertical attic ladder to access the existing roof storage in this small Tewantin unit.

Location:  Tewantin, Qld 4565

The current owners of this 2 bedroom 1 bathroom unit in Tewantin on Queensland’s beautiful Sunshine Coast were lucky enough to purchase this home with an abundance of existing storage located in the attic.  At one point, the roof space of this unit has been transformed into a tidy and functional storage room, lined with gyprock walls and ceiling, including a small window and carpet floor coverings.

 For years these owners have been accessing this storage room via a ladder they regularly retrieve from the shed and lean against the vertical opening in the wall, in order to climb.  This method for regularly accessing such a fantastic storage room within their home is clearly not practical nor safe, especially considering they are often carrying bulky items up and down this ladder and like us all, the owners are not getting any younger.

Due to these reasons, Roof Space Renovators were contacted to assist provide a safe and practical access solution for this couple.  In addition to gaining safe and simple access by having a quality purpose built attic ladder installed, this couple believed they would benefit more from the storage room, due to the ease and ability to use and access it. 

Roof Space Renovators had the perfect solution!  The Columbus Junior Attic Ladder is a concertina style ladder, constructed of lightweight alloy, safety handrail, wide safe grooved steptreads and a gentle 60 degree angle. It is available with a Vertical Adaptor which allows for the ladder to be used in a vertical position through a wall or existing doorway in a wall and is conveniently stored on top of the floor.  For this couple, the Columbus Junior with Vertical Adaptor was perfect.  It provided them with the safe access they required in combination with ease of use, allowing them to make better use of the existing storage room. No more retrieving the ladder from the shed and lugging it through the house.  Plus, it looks great and completes the room!
