I see them every once in a while equipped with what are essentially ship's ladders. They're usually playrooms for children but I had an A-frame house the other day that had been built that way with a ship's ladder to the sleeping loft. Around here, the local code guys seem to approve them for such limited applications.

OT - OF!!!

I believe that the Oregon Building Codes Division issued an interpretation on this one and said no, there has to be a stairway.
