Working Hard Around the Yard

Hey neighbors!

Most of my neighbors are aware that we now have a gorgeous deck out back that has been roofed over.  It is GREAT!  Even in the cold weather we are enjoying it, but alot of work went into the building of the deck and the roof.  Not to mention, we also put together an aluminum shed for our rabbits.  I don't know how often we were lugging a ladder from place to place.

Anyway, I wanted to ask if any of my neighbors has ever used The Little Giant Ladder System?  I have heard they are very easy to use and convenient in all kinds of situations.  They can be used in so many different ways.  Apparently you can shape them in different positions if needed.  I know my daughter and I could have used something like this when putting the roof of the shed on!  Remember, we decided to show the boys we could do it all by ourselves.  I will confess we had to call them out once or twice so we would have an extra pair of hands.

Personally I think we did a pretty good job.  It did take us a little longer than we expected though!  Next on our list is to move the dog kennels under cover.  They already have canvas roofs, but we want them under an aluminum roof.  Here we go again!  I will post pictures when we are done.  Hopefully we won't have to wait for spring.

See you soon!

We have a Little Giant Ladder System. We purchased to help make a platform by making it into an upside down v with a board stretching to a landing on our stairs. This way, we could paint and do wall repair without being on a ladder.
