WHAT ?!?! They can't lash half a 16 to the 40 ????

You need to hire a crew with some cojones

(now's the time for some sanctimoniousity about how not right that is )

Just trying to keep the checks Rollin in.... and i know I'm stubborn but I can't imagine painting by myself...I'd be bored out of my mind...I won't even paint a bed room with out a helper....the second I figured out for a small fee I could make almost the same amount of money on any given job....I've always had a helper....no matter how small the work load.

I'm on a monster of an exterior right now that my 40 footer couldn't reach....Qualcraft ladder hooks, roof anchors, safety harness, rope, lanyard, & rope grab.

The roof anchors were already installed. I will say though, there's always that thought in the back of my mind when I gotta trust my life to whomever installed the roof anchors.

I'm sure they used the big roofing nails....

Not only do I fiquere in a lift when needed I mark it up as I do if I rent staging. Learned this long ago taking off prints on commercial work. I'm a professional providing a service including all tools, all material and all labor and all insurances .
What I want from the HO is the final check and a great review.

Update: I sucked it up and ate it. I simply told the HO that I didn't think that I needed a lift, but that I am slowly realizing that I am not a 19 year old Spiderman anymore. But in the end I will not be using a lift, but a 40 foot fiberglass extension ladder already available on the job site with someone hired simply to help me hold and move the ladder around. I will use a rope so that I do not fall off the sides as I use an aluminum shield to shield off the brick from the facial and soffits I will be spraying (hardiplank). I never let the HO think for a second that it would be his responsibility, because it is not.

Am I inferring correctly that you're implying you are a solo operator? And that you are taking on an exterior such as that by yourself? (well, with the exception of hiring a grunt to hold and help move the ladder) ?

You're a braver man than most.

When in a pinch you can always tie three ladders together.

Saw this guy in Charleston while at the PDCA convention this March. Don't know if I could do it, but I'd like to try 😁Lift Not in the Bid-imageuploadedbypainttalk.com1432174335.911840.jpgLift Not in the Bid-imageuploadedbypainttalk.com1432174350.956504.jpg

I'm not so old that I can't remember when I used to LOVE working at height, but my body does now refuse to even consider it . . and my bowels just relax at the mere thought

But, this is my usual cue to recall one of my fave pix posted by a third generational painter, he participated a few times a while back. Name is Stacy with user name of jackrabbit5 from Iowa. Note the date of the pic.

LOVE what they did to git her dun






That's a 60 foot WOODEN ladder at the bottom. They didn't whine about not having lifts in the budget

I LOVE stuff like that Bill. Some of the old steeple jacks did some pretty cool things also. This is worth a watch if you haven't seen it yet.

So do I Paul. At our age, we live vicariously

Yah know, one of those vids of Fred taught me an important lesson that escaped me for all the decades I climbed ladders - "stick your knees out sideways"

Now that we have rented a left a couple of times. I have to remember to NOT include it in all bids.
