Pretty Unique Spiral Staircase in Lafayette Home

I see many homes every week. It is the nature of my job. Sometimes I see pretty unique stuff, too, and in the least expected places. We discovered this teeny tiny spiral staircase in a closet while doing inspections at a small cottage in Lafayette last week. Fun stuff!

Very small spiral staircase, lafayette, la

The space is tight for sure and the steps are barely wide enough for two feet side by side. The staircase leads to the attic with two panels opening at the top. In the attic, it looks like there once was a child’s room or playroom that hasn’t been used in years.

Do you have a unique space in your home? I would love to hear about it…

Also, we have been told as Realtors to go visit our vacant listings and vacant lands. Every owner of a vacant home or vacant property in the Lafayette area should do the same.

I should have written about this sooner. We never know where the next clue will come from. Please help us find Mickey!
