Today dad and I finished welding on the post bottoms and top plates and erected three of them. The posts weigh just over 200lbs each and were a bit unwieldy to lift into place, especially considering that we needed to get them over the threaded rod that has not yet been cut to length, adding an extra foot of needed lifting power. But we’ve placed the three hardest ones (each ~10′ long) and the remaining two are less than five feet each. We’ll place those two and begin lifting the adjoining beams into place tomorrow. Stay tuned…
