I don’t want to be accused of encouraging sloth, but even the hardest workers need a break now and then. And you might as well make the most of a few minute’s rest. So the next time you and your cohorts stop for coffee or lunch, let them fight over the sawhorses and drywall buckets while you grab the job-site equivalent of the La-Z-Boy recliner, the wheelbarrow. With the handles tipped down, as shown in the drawing, it’s the most comfortable seat on the site. One word of caution: Make sure no one’s recently been mixing concrete in it before you sit down.
