Escape Ladder Shelf Unit

I designed and built this shelf unit that doubles as an escape ladder for our very good friends. They have 2 bedrooms in the basement of their new home with the bottom of the egress windows over 6' high from the floor. Obviously there would be no way for anyone to get out of the windows in the event of an emergency. This is what I came up with in collaboration with our friends to allow an easier escape route out the windows and alleviate any worries they had when guests were sleeping in the bedroom. It also doubles as a decorative shelf unit.
