Here’s one for the do-it-yourself-ers out there: Right now Amazon has the Werner 22-foot 300-lb capacity Multi-Ladder available for just $159 shipped. That’s not only a good $100 cheaper than it’s being sold anywhere else, the free shipping on a 42-pound item isn’t too shabby, either.
Looking at all the different ways you can configure this baby kind of makes me want to start declaring, “It slices! It dices! It makes perfect julienned fries every time!” Basically, with this one ladder, you have a stepladder, extension ladder, scaffolding—pretty much anything you might need. The fact that you can configure it to work on stairs is pretty sweet (and something I wish I’d had the last time we painted).
And sure, you may be buried in snow now, but come Spring you might be glad you had the foresight to order ahead. I have it on good authority that the rain gutters don’t clean themselves.
