Gable block work survived the winds. The outer skin brickwork will be done today. Then just got lift these two bad boys into place. Think builder is having second thoughts and has asked me to look into cranes 😳. Bladdy expensive. The long I-beam is 6.5m and does weigh a fair old wack.
Anyone got access to a crane??

Yeah probably need to build a bit of scaffold between the ‘pyramids’ and then get the gym bunnies to lift the beams up bit by bit until near the peak and then get them in place on top of the pad stones..

Depending on the helpers you get they might even be up for lifting them via ladders.

By the way have you any idea the weight of the 6.5 meter beam? I’m in the process of organising a 6m beam and wondering if I will need a few extra hands to secure it in its final resting place, above head height but on ground level.
