so building a ladder trumps his normal job of crafting stone objects?

It’s quite hard to determine how important a ladder is, after all it might be needed to free other hearthlings out of a hole they dug and can’t get out of by themselves.

It shouldn’t, and we already have a separate topic about issues with Hearthling priorities. I was simply stating that it is impossible to prevent a Hearthling from building a ladder via the citizens menu.
