I'm thinking 3 weeks 4 tops, I bid it for 4 weeks and 5 guys. We will end up with 4 full timers and 1 part timer. Plus we just invested in a bunch of tools to make it go faster. We have the Paint Shaver already and that will make quick work out of most of the siding. Our infrared is on it's way just ordered it. We have done slightly bigger with 4 and it took just over 4 weeks.

A Summer killer? That's shouldn't be the biggest concern. This job could kill thousands of children if not handled properly.

Absolutely. He is one of the biggest advocates for RRP.

As I understand it, he call the inspector out to his jobs.

I do just to make sure I'm doing nothing wrong. He has already been by there and will poke his head in over the course of the job. I would rather do it this way then find out the hard way I did some thing wrong. Plus if any neighbors complain he already has a heads up on the job at hand.

Sweetness!
I bought a second set last year and am continually amazed at how effective they are for projects like this. They take some practice setting up properly, but it's oh so nice to have that stable, adjustable platform to work from.

We will see what they have for old rentals, maybe buy 2 or 3 pole set ups or start with 2 new and get more after this job is done. My old boss used them a lot. I have wanted a set for a few years now.

Am assuming you're going with the Aluma-poles.
The others work, but not nearly as slick & safe. Don't be afraid to pony up for extra braces from the get go, you won't regret it.

Yes the Aluma poles. When I first started painting my old boss used 4x4 or 2 2x4 nailed together and it made me nervous on them. I'm thinking about safety harnesses also. We have 2 sets now might get 1 or 2 more.

In the beginning we used doubled up 2x4's and it was downright scary. Even with the Aluma-Poles we use braces per instructions (I think it's every 8').

Do you plan on having a workbench behind you?
It can be extremely handy and a great comfort once you go above 24'.

I do want a workbench. I will be checking on the braces and get what we need to make it safe. If every 8' we will grab 6 unless we can get more set ups used then we will grab extra braces as needed.

This week I feel like a kid in the candy store, all kinds of Festools, infrared heater, pumps this week. Life will be better.

Could you use ladder jacks and planks for your 'work bench'?

The alumapole workbench system is great, since it travels up and down with the stage.

Ah, thanks. That's why I asked. Never used, or heard of this system. Thought maybe the ladder jack idea might be more wallet friendly
