How To Move Furniture Up a Spiral Staircase?

Q: I just moved in to a tiny bungalow. There is a small loft area accessible only by a rickety staircase (currently). My landlord told me he doesn't want to rebuild the stairs; rather, he is going to buy a spiral staircase kit and have it replace the stairs. At first I was thrilled, but then I realized—how will I get furniture up there? Including this loft, the bungalow is only four rooms so if I don't use it, it's like only getting 3/4 of a house! What do other people who have spiral stairs do? How can I make this work? I had planned on using it as an office/sitting area. -Sent by Carol

Editor: This sounds like a situation that no amount of pivoting will help. Readers, how can Carol move into a room accessible only by a tiny spiral staircase?
