One common impediment to tackling do-it-yourself tasks around the house is the inability to access areas that are out of reach. With a versatile ladder (or two) it’s trivial to safely go everywhere you previously couldn’t. The initial investment in a good ladder will quickly pay for itself when you’re no longer hiring out the tasks you can do yourself.
There are many varieties of ladder, but the best one for DIY use is the multi-purpose ladder. Mine has a twenty-two foot reach and has taken me places that a lesser ladder could only dream about. Unsure about what you can do with such a ladder? No worries, I have inspiration for you below the fold.
