All this talk about the roof deck on top of the studio container is missing one little detail: how will we get up there? The best answer is probably a spiral staircase. It’s the most permanent, economical, and space-saving method…because a ladder just won’t do.
I’ve long had a fear of spiral staircases. OK, maybe not a real fear, but I am certainly aprehensive about them. I specifically remember crying and refusing to descend the narrow, winding steps to the dark and scary basement at Castle Loma in Canada on a family vacation many, many years ago (check it out below–super scary, right??).

I’d like to think that modern day spirals have come a long way, or that at least I’ve grown up and used enough stairs in my life that I can descend with confidence. But I think I’ll at least need a railing to hold on to, and that means the second option below, with all the color and coolness, is out.
