How to wire a scaffolding to your home
You probably haven’t seen scaffolding before.
But if you have, you’re probably wondering where to find it.
Scaffolding can be pretty difficult to find in your neighbourhood, and even in your own backyard.
Here’s how to wire scaffolding up to your own home.
Start by building a small space using a plywood planter.
This is a great way to get a feel for the size of the space and its shape.
Once you have a planter plan, make sure it’s sturdy enough to hold a single piece of plywood.
This can be easy with a pair of scissors.
Once the planter is fully assembled, lay a sheet of plyboard (usually around 15 to 20 inches long) across the centre of the plan.
This will help keep the plywood flat.
Next, lay the plyboard on top of the plywoods, so it’s flush with the top of each piece of plank.
This gives you the flexibility to adjust the height and width of each of the pieces as you build the structure.
Next up, lay more plywood across the middle of the structure, making sure to lay it flush with one side of the centre plywood, making the whole structure level.
Next lay a second layer of plywoods on top.
This should be about 1.5 metres thick.
This layer will help support the plywork as you create the walls.
Finally, lay additional plywood in between the two layers of ply and between the walls, so that the whole project is level.
This last layer will be the weakest point of the scaffolding, but it’s usually the best choice.
Once all of the construction has been done, you can add a roof.
Some scaffolding designs are easier to put together with a roof on the inside, and others with a more open roof on top, but the two are generally the most difficult.
If you need help with the roof, talk to your builder or local professional.
To finish up the scaffold, lay another layer of plastic sheeting across the entire length of the project.
This sheet should be 3 metres wide, making it easy to bend around a person or a car.
If there’s more than one person in the room, you may want to add extra sheets.
Finally secure the roof to the top and bottom of the building with screws.
If it’s a long, narrow room, use an extension cord to attach it to a pole.
If the room is short, you’ll need a small extension cord.
Once your scaffolding is done, hang a sign to let everyone know it’s finished.
Make sure to let the homeowner know you’re happy with their work.
If they’re happy, they’ll want to take pictures and/or leave feedback on social media.
If all goes well, you should be able to have scaffolding in your home for at least a year.
