my friends daughter that lives in the next yard over was using s swimming pool ladder to get over the fence so she wouldn’t have to walk around the block to get to his house. Well the pool ladder is out of order so I built this ladder that leans on the fence for her to get to the other side. I still need to build one more ladder for the other side but for now she steps on to a chair on the other side.
I used a water bed frame for the wood to build this . I used my skill saw set at 30 degrees angle to cut into the
2×6 boards for the frame of the ladder. I ripped some boards to I think about 4 inches to stick out and the ladder is about 24 inches wide . I put 2 inch screws in each step board to hold them in place. I leaned it up against the fence and crawled up it and sat on the top step for a bit . Pretty sturdy with the amount that it leans on the fence. This ladder doesn’t weigh that much and is very sturdy.
Thanks for looking.
