Frame Raising in South-Central Kentucky, Sept. 2, 2007
« on: August 09, 2007, 06:37:23 PM »
Hey, ya'll!

I mentioned the date I chose for my frame raising in my other topic, but I thought I'd put it here as a general invite for everyone.

On Sunday of Labor Day Weekend (September 2, 2007), we'll be raising the frame for our house. The raising will be a two stage process -- the bents which are assembled to the 2nd floor will be raised, then the rafters will be assembled and raised on top. The raising will employ the use of a gin pole, block and tackle, chain hoist, and severe effort. If the process takes longer than expected, there'll be more work on Monday (there'll be lots more work for me before this project is completed).

If you want to join us, whether to help or just to watch a novice raise a frame he's cut with his own hands, let me know!

p.s. Actually, I didn't cut it with my hands -- I used a lot of different tools.  :D
