    I have a few houses where the window frame is the best place to put the ladder, but this is with an a frame that has a nice big rubber pad on the end of it. I wouldn't dream of putting the ladder on the glass though.

    i cant understand it but....it was a house where the window goes right upto the roof and he was painting under the eaves...i only figured it was a ladder by measuring the distance between the marks....maybe he only put it on for a second but...that was enough she hasnt tried to blame me yet but i am ready is she does....
