Hello, I am not an inspector but a prospective home buyer. Not sure if I am breaking any forum rules here but I just have a question after reading the Homeowners Handbook.
At the end of Chapter 1, the book says, “Cutting out parts of a ceiling to install a whole house fan or a pull down access stair is a common and costly error”
After reading this, I am now wondering if installing an attic pull down stairs is not a good idea? Or is it implying that such work is usually not done properly so can lead to problems? I am currently under contract to buy a home with attic access through a small opening in the ceiling of the master bedroom closet. I wanted to build a pull down stair in the hallway for better access.
Any help would be great!
