Most of the time, when you're looking for how-to ideas, searching online
will result in lots of options. This time, I'm not having much luck - with
the exeption of expensive commercial solutions.
What I would LIKE to see are some ideas on how I can give myself better
(permanent) access to the roof that is more stable than an extension
ladder. I only need to get up about 4 meters to a simple "A" roof, but
with every passing year that transition from the top of the ladder to the
sloped roof becomes more dangerous.
Has anyone built exterior stairs or utilized a fixed ladder to the roof
perhaps with some extended hand rails to make getting on & off the roof
Alternatively, I'm certainly open to a purchased or second-hand solution if
the cost is reasonable.
Pictures would be great if anyone would like to share a URL or two.
With the number of antennas that have been put on the roof by Amateur Radio
operators over the decades, I have to think that someone out there besides
me got tired of using a plain old ladder at some point.
