Re: New House New Project

Your home looks lovely, Summer - full of light, graced with the best of the old and new. I particularly like the transoms above the windows and the wing towards the garage. I am sure you are very excited - and tired!

Like you, I tackled very high ceilings and a doubling of that for the stairwells when we moved in. The best option turned out to be renting scaffolding. I liked having the large rectangular cage at the top that made me feel a lot more confident at those heights. It's amazing how brave you get when you get a quote that approaches the cost of a new car . I am not sure what rental options you have near you, but scaffolding might be worth investigating.

Re: New House New Project

Hi Surfermom....yes we looked into hiring a scaffolding platform but actually it was cheaper to buy the one I posted about earlier and I'm glad to have found it its a really good bit of kit....I'll post some pics later when I get chance. Yes some high ceilings here too especially the hall..I'll post a pic

Dextrose I bought a hop up and you are right....really useful thanks for the tip.
