The mystery of the staircase.

The staircase that is supposed to be built going from the 2nd floor up to the attic has become a mystery to me. I just can't wrap my head around how it is actually going to be configured. Actually, the carpenter and the contractor can't quite figure it out either. They were both over at my house this morning taking a look at the space, and getting measurements. After much conversation, and speculating, we were left with 2 main points. The stairs must pass the building code of the City of Chicago, and we must decide where the doors and walls are going to be after the stairs are actually all built. That's perfectly fine with me, but I can see now, that my grandson Sean is not going to get his one request concerning this project. The stairs are going to have to enter the front of the attic, in which case, Sean is going to have to choose the back of the attic as his space.
It's a big mystery. Hopefully sometime next week, or the following week, the stairs will be built and the mystery will be solved.
