Re: What ladder for working on nine foot ceiling?
Yep ---- even if you were only 3 feet tall a six footer would still be enough.

On job sites I've used many things from 5 gallon pails or milk crates for bases with 2x6 or 2x8 laid flat for the platform.
For reaching higher up ---- 2 step ladders with planks laid on the rungs between them works as well.
A lot cheaper than buying the expensive mulifunction ladders.
