@fuigb I had to check your profile to make sure you don’t live in my neighborhood…. I have a 2×4 ladder that came with the house.

It’s not notched or anything, just 2×4’s steps butt jointed to 2×4” rails and screwed in. (maybe nailed even?) It’s only 8 steps or so, I only use it to get on my 1 story detached garage to blow the leaves out of the gutter. Feels pretty solid, and I’m no stranger to working on ladders (was a roofer for a few years) but still makes me pause just a second every time I use it.
