Work Platforms For The Roof

I found some plans at finehomebuilding.com for making safe platforms for working on a steeply pitched roof. The brackets are made with 2x4s and 1/2" plywood; and 2x6s are laid on top across the brackets. They give me a good solid area to stand on while I'm working up there.

You can also see a strap attached to the upper work-platform in this photo. I have a full safety harness that I wear when I'm working on the roof. I attach the lanyard on the safety harness to the strap you see here. The strap is actually an auto tow-strap. They're very strong, good for about 2500 lbs.
