I must say at 47 years old this is a total ass kicker, but at the end of the day and a shower I know I have put out my all and when the job is done the feeling I get is killer. I told my mom when I was three that I wanted to be a worker man, dreams do come true, LOL.

that is a large project and I'm sure you made Mom proud with that one.

I was totally stoked to learn that I could go up 1 1/2 " to 3" thick 20' high, I kept thinking if this falls!  I had a smaller column fall on the back of my head and neck. That column was only 8' tall and the section that came down on me was falling from only 3 feet, I was reliefing the stuff below and the top fell on my head and neck, not cool. Two weeks later, massage and chiro I was better.

Ouch...might want to add some Perlite to the mix if you're going to wear it...ouch.  ;-)

a 2x3 section perlite or no perlite is going to hurt when it falls on your head I know this for a fact, LOL.

That scaffolding system was simply the best. I am a big guy, that thing would not move. We were 2 levels high and 20 long and we would move around on that thing with ease and total confidence at all times. We had one ladder that came with the system that connected to the side. My bro and I did this job together in 15 days we both are well over 200 lbs, our butts were kicked every day but with regular scaffolding this job would have been several more days of work, scarier and kind of a pain. Don't skimp on scaffolding!!!

Guh, I had three quarters of an archway in the wine cellar I just did last wek fall on my head . . . Almost as uncool as the 4 by 4 section of 2" overhead work that fell on my face the next day
