When Club member Nicholas Clew of Farmington Hills, Michigan, decided to paint his house, he faced a challenge. To reach the upper portion of his home’s walls, he’d need to stand on part of the roof. Of course, the roof lacked a flat surface on which to set equipment or raise a ladder. Nick solved the dilemma by constructing this platform from 2x4s and 3/4-in. plywood. With foam pads tacked to the undersides, the platform not only provides a firm, level work surface but also helps to reduce the stress on the shingles because Nick spends far less  time walking on them.
