Heavy Lifting

The covered awning and shop extention work is in high gear.  The fabrication of the roof beams and rafters is almost done.  The beams have been lagged in place and now the rafters are being 'swung' into position.   The beams for the rafters are schedule 80 steel and estimated to weigh around 500 lbs each.  
This is very heavy construction.  Looking ahead to typhoon strength winds coming at us once again in the future, the additional details put into this will be worth it.
