Crawl Space Caddy Part 2 – Background and Description

I need to do some work under the house that will either involve a large amount of effort and physical discomfort, or a medium amount of effort and physical discomfort and some fun time inventing things in the workshop. I opted for the second option. This video covers the background information about what I’m building and why, and will likely be part of a series eventually culminating in a full build video. No promises on that last part, since I never know when life is going to kick me right in the plans.

I tried to make this informative and entertaining, and spent a little more time than usual in production. The whole video took four weekends to make, used 40 GB of video, and took my 6-core processor to 100% capacity. If you found it entertaining or useful, please share the link around to help keep the channel alive.

In case this gives you any ideas and you decide to build your own contraption, some of the parts I used are linked below. This isn’t a complete parts list, and doesn’t come with instructions or diagrams beyond what’s shown in the video and Instagram photos. No sense in doing a build video until I get the final design figured out.
