Down the hatch

After a number of years clambering up and down a shaky old aluminium ladder, I decided to treat the loft to a new enlarged hatch and folding ladder constructed from larch.
The new ladder is rock solid with wider and deeper treads, so much safer as slot car racers approach their advancing years.  The hatch is now much bigger at 700x1100mm but is pretty discrete once painted up.

Inside the loft I installed another handle to match the first one, which by a happy coincidence is the same colour as the rails on the ladder.

Wish I'd done this years ago...
