作为“家庭简单”的专家之一,A D.I.Y.亚搏电竞比赛视频在Oprah Winfrey网络上显示,Ken Wayard.经常发现自己绘画,挂图片或做需要梯子的其他家庭改进。

在他的生活中也是如此。Wayard先生,48,16年前开始了家具公司,现在在旧金山拥有零售商店;他还拥有一个爱德华州的家庭,加利福尼亚州梅内诺县的乡间屋。他与他的配偶和他们的1岁女儿分享.Ladders在他的许多家务中,在工作和家里,“是否it’s replacing a track bulb in the store with its 15-foot ceilings,” he said, or “repainting our hideous circus-peanut-orange barn a real barn red.”One of his favorite sources for ladders (and lots of other things) is Cliff’s Variety, a San Francisco institution in the Castro District that carries a wide range of merchandise, including fabric, copper sheeting, tools and even toys. Mr. Wingard, who has shopped there since he moved to San Francisco from New York in 1989, quickly singled out one of the many ladders on display: the Xtend and Climb by Osh.“This is the perfect New York City or small-apartment ladder,” he said. “It scrunches down to nothing, so you can keep it under your bed. But if you need a huge ladder — boom — you’ve got it.”At the Crate & Barrel in Berkeley, Calif., he picked out a basic three-step ladder, the kind “you’d keep in the utility closet for reaching the bunny-shaped platter you keep on the top shelf and use every fourth year.”Mr. Wingard suggested Werner’s 22-foot multiposition ladder, which he found online at Lowe’s, for those who have only one ladder.“It does everything,” he said. “It can be a simple stepladder, or you can use it to paint a double-height stairwell, because one leg can be shorter than the other.”His favorite type of ladder, however, is the orchard ladder, he said, because he has a sentimental attachment to his collection of vintage wooden ones.Online, he found a three-legged aluminum version he liked, from Ben Meadows. But when it comes to cherry- and peach-picking at his home in Mendocino, Mr. Wingard prefers one of his rickety old ladders.It is probably not the safest option, he admitted. Still, vintage ladders “look incredibly poetic,” he said, “and make me feel like I’m an early homesteader.”
