    Are there suppliers of lifts for folding attic stairs?

      Yes, there are suppliers. I have them here on my website. Just type: attic stair manufacturers into my search engine!

    We have an older home. I'd like to install an attic ladder in our garage but the distance between the garage ceiling joists is only 21.75". I have not found any attic stair kits that are less than 22.5". Can I cut a ceiling joist to make the opening wide enough or is this unwise. Is there anything else I need to know about doing this?

      You can't cut an attic TRUSS. You can alter conventional collar ties. For detailed instructions, you need to order one of my 15-Minute Phone consults.
