Now that the lumber is here, the first to do was to get it indoors, stacked in a way that makes it easy to access things in the right order. Peter, Ryan and Will came out to help my daughters, my wife and me re-stack everything.
We got it re-stacked in about an hour. The 22′ long 5-1/4″x16″ laminated beam weighed about 530lbs – it took everyone’s strength to get it inside. I’ll have to come up with a safe way to get it 8ft in the air.
