I take it you've never built anything...

(unless your misspelling of manual to "manuel" was intentional, in which case LOL )

Yabutt only one foot on the top step, so only halfway dangerous. ;)

No problem. He falls off and dies, you just go go Home Depot and get another day laborer. Day laborers are way cheaper than the correct size ladder.

But seriously, doesn't he look a lot like "Curly" Fine? N'yuk N'yuk, N'yuk

My 16' by 24' was $2,500 for concrete, $3,000 for lumber and hardware, and about $4,000 for Manuel Labor. Took exactly 4 weeks from pour to nailing down the last shingles.

Oh yeah... $1,100 in fees and BS to the City of San Diego!

Half of both is just concrete ...correct..?..

When I built my house the concrete and excavating were the most expensive parts.

And labor usually is about the same a material..

Building permit renewal in my neck of the woods...$500. Actual permit is based on percentage of job cost

In my project several pages earlier, the slab was 34 yds of concrete at a price of $100.00 per yard and $1,500.00 for about 5....er....ahh.....Southern Concrete workers. About $5,000.00 for the 30' x 50'--8" thick slab.

Unfortunately EVERYTHING in the DC area is more expensive than most places.

Funny that you guys got a little worked up over the ladder thing. I do not know anyone who hasn't done that before!

I make it a habit of grabbing the shortest ladder. It's lighter.

Ladder

I get other people to go up on the ladder.

I stay on the ground and direct...
