It’s been sunny, so I’ve been trying to button up the outside of the new house I’ve been building (seemingly forever) before the good weather ends, which may be this morning from the looks of it. How to get up to the peak, to paint those barge rafters? My longest extension ladder just won’t quite reach. I’ve used my truck for a lot of things, but never before as a ladder platform. Stepping off the porch roof and back on the ladder the first time was a bit disconcerting though, as the springs on the truck eased down. Every ladder should have a suspension.
