A few weeks ago I was on my way to the post office when I noticed a ceiling fan for sale in front of the Mercantile store for $25. Since I was planning to put a fan in the workshop part of the garage I figured I would scoop it up. Only problem was that the ceiling in the shop is about 20ft. tall. My 12 foot stepfoot ladder wasn’t going to get me close, and there wasn’t a way to securely get up that high on my 16 foot extension ladder. Fortunately Dennis at DCI Builders loaned me some scaffolding to install the fan and to get the top of the front and back gables painted. With the ceiling fan installed I then wondered if I was going to have to borrow scaffolding in order to change the light bulbs, but since the fan is on a 3 foot downrod, I can just reach the lights with the 12ft. ladder.
