I think 2014 will go down for me as the summer of scaffold. Everywhere I turn at the moment I seem to be surrounded by the stuff. I can’t say I’ve ever been one to admire it but this summer it’s different.
It’s not so much the scaffold itself, more it’s the guys who do it (I’m all for women being able to do any job but I’ve never seen a female scaffolder). If there is more a physically demanding job out there then I can assume they have brought back Roman gladiators. If you can get away with it, check out the physique of the men who do this.
