Fire Doors & Loft Conversions - Help!

Hi Stoneyboy. Many thanks for taking the time to reply. So if you exit a loft space down a wooden staircase into a small, fire protected non-habitable room on the first floor, and then open a fire door to exit straight down another staircase out through an exit door on the ground floor is that ok? o...

Skirting? What is aesthetically right/wrong?
