Beams Going Up!

Here are a few shots of one of the ways we use to get our beams up onto the cabin.  The beams are 36' long and 10 to 12 inches in diameter, making them far to heavy to lift by hand.  We used the winch on Tom's truck to pull the logs up the opposite side of the cabin.  A temporary post is anchored to the front wall of the cabin to hang a pulley on.

It's always fun to see these logs go up.  Along with enhancing the appearance of the cabin these beams provide a substantial snow load support.
