I used to do one just like that but on the ocean, sketchy but a great job.
About 10-12 feet below the plank. About another 25 feet to the bottom of the steep hill. I just used a mop and squeegee.
The older I get the more I tie off… but I do acknowledge there are ‘grey zones’ of safety vs getting the job done efficiently and this job here looks like one of em
Yeah definitely manageable. If I have to do it on a windy day; I’ll head over to Home Depot and get a harness and lanyard.
I applaud this move. The you will have it for all future jobs in need of a tie off.
In jest of those guys who ask “how much would you charge for this?” and show a picture of a few windows on a building.
“How much would you charge for this?” LoL
And now for the rest of the story…
Yes I did have to stand in the road to 1) pressure wash the sides and 2) clean the glass canopies.
I had to call up a traffic control company and work with them as they blocked lanes of traffic off for me. It was a good experience.
I think I see your question: you are asking if I could clean the glass from the walkway? I had to ladder up from the ground for half the west side and I could put my ladder in the flower bed for the other half. For the east side (the side this picture is taken from) I had to stand in the street.
Here’s a hint,
Very hot today, but lower humidity made it tolerable
Architecturally blah but this poorly maintained and minimally occupied downtown building is coming back to life with new owners and new tenants. My gym client moved into 4K SF on the lower corner and two tenants are moving in too.
Even though Alaska’s oil driven economy is tanking my hometown has enough resiliency to keep chugging and that means a lot to me.
Days like this I love, although 15mph wind makes it a bit hairy.
