Ladder to the roof is done

The roof providers 1000 more sq feet of space on our house. It was designed to hold people, plants, a hottub, etc. But there's no way to get to it.

So I built a ladder. It's welded out of 304 stainless steel using 316 stainless wire in the welds. So there's no need to paint or prevent rusting. Though it is 17' tall (tall ceilings) we estimate it only weighs about 70lbs. We actually hoisted it by hand to the second level, using people roped in to the railings and lifting. My friends are good sports. :)
