We’ve all had the conversation. Late night. A couple sixers of PBR deep. Dead in winter dreaming of rock. “Man, we should totally put some plastic underneath the back stairs. It would make a sick overhang.” Or, “I saw this woodie for sale on Craigslist. It’ll definitely fit in the living room. (Note to reader: be careful when you check out a woodie that you see on Craigslist. Bring a friend or a bat.)
Now here’s one idea. Scrap the stairs and throw up a climbing wall to get from the kitchen to the roof deck. Works if you’re designing a house from scratch. Which no climbers have the money to do. No matter how oblivious your landlord, I think they’ll notice you cutting holes in the ceiling.
What would you do if Ty Pennington showed up at your doorstep with a wad of cash and said he was going to give your pad an extreme makeover, climber’s style?
