Interior door design

We need some help designing a door mounting style that will allow us to access our hinged crawl space stairs. This door would help keep the cold from entering the rest of our lower tri-level space.

Also these stairs are hinged and lift upward into our game room. These stairs allow us to enter up into our family room.

We need pics- post them in photobucket or similar then add the link to them in your reply.

Generally speaking, regular-use stairs must be constructed in such a way that they almost have to be in a fixed position, not movable or hinged, which makes me wonder what you're talking about. Pull-down attic stairs are permitted for that purpose but not regular use. Just because something can be done is not always a good reason to do it and there can be many unseen problems and liabilities involved when you try doing the wrong things.
