Flooring, refinishing, and a handrail (oh my)



Sometimes the most visually innocuous elements are the most daunting. In this case, safely getting a coat of paint on a drywall-enclosed duct running across a 2-story window, without falling to my death or disability on the stairs below.
Fall protection had to be placed in-between and around railing fabrication and floor refinishing. It was also my dust barrier from the next floor. I screwed together a wooden rig and clamped it to the stair enclosure, and then constructed a slotted cross-bar with legs that could be lifted on and off it from safety. Once in place I could hop over knowing that if I lost my balance, I would hit the lattice.
