The Ceiling Saver

ceiling_saver.jpgEarlier in the week we were doing the spider crawl up in the floorless attic, trying to spread some insulation around and also trying to keep our feet and knees on the joists, hoping and praying that we wouldn't slip and put a foot through the plaster and lath ceiling of Tool Snob Jr's bedroom.

Then, a day later we saw in the latest issue of JLC, something called the Ceiling Saver. What it is is a folding platform that sits over 2' oc joist bays. It looks like it gives you plenty of room to sit on as well as magnetic areas to keep tools and screws in one place. It can support 250 lbs so you fattys and linebackers are out of luck.

It would be nice in our situation because the attic hatch is only about 18" x18", so getting any substantial amount of plywood up there is out of the question.

It costs about $70.
