hello, i recently brought my first home and can't afford to do much to it yet, but i'm trying to get a plan together for when i can. anyway, i'm wondering how practical a spiral staircase is if it's the only way to a second level. in this case a loft over the garage and the deck that surrounds it. i want the stairs to link a deck on the back of the house and the deck around the loft, but since i want to finish the loft someday, i'll need to move stuff like couches or refrigerators or other big bulky stuff up there on it. dose anyone have one in their home? can it be used for hauling stuff up and down? thanks for any help.
