First: You need several beams, in our case 3, a tractor and very heavy chain.
Someone to direct you ...optional.
Second: The ability to "drive' a 40' , 900 lb beam, as it swings around, hopefully not hitting anyone or knocking any part of your new barn out.
After all they have moved lots of fence post, that are at least 4' long and weight nearly 2 lbs. each.
How different could this be?
Third: Center this swaying beam.
hoping that the beam is straight enough to fit on each of the post.
Have a brother who is a great welder, builds bridges, and
is willing to help out for one entire afternoon after working all day.
It is a great start, and we are definitely in his debt.
Thanks for visiting our "lofty" part of the country,
Aw, what a great brother!! Terrific shed too. (I have a great appreciation for beaut sheds) :) and this is a beautie!ReplyDelete
Hi Rose, my husband is like a little boy with a new toy...he loves his new barn/shed.Delete
It looks like a long job ahead!ReplyDelete
Hi Tracey, yes it is a lot of work, we are doing the work ourself to save some $$$. It will take a while to get it finished.Delete
awesome! and your walk-thru of the process had me laughing. 4' and 2 lbs. how different could it be? :)ReplyDelete
Ya my guys don't see it as different, they don't ask for directions either LOLDelete
Looking forward to more pictures...so nice to have family to help!ReplyDelete
Ya it has a ways to go, right now it's more of a "walk thru" rather than a loft. LOLDelete
It's nice to have a handy dandy brother!! The shed looks great, but I bet not as great as "your" garage is going to!ReplyDelete
I need to do an updated blog on my garage...somedayReplyDelete
Well "balanced" work !ReplyDelete
Thanks I will give updates it is a work in progress.Delete
Is this where the upcoming wedding will take place?ReplyDelete
No the wedding is taking place at the MB church, but we are having dinner after the dress rehearsal at the barn so that might be giving him motivation to get it done.Delete
