And as we get older, that thing about falling down on the ice gets pretty serious. So I rented a gigantic crane thingy last week and am spending each day way up in the air schlepping beams, joists, and plywood into place. Here are a few shots from the crane extended up its full 45 feet. Two new support beams for the north extension:
North extension framed and sheathed, south extension framed in.
An unusual view of my house from the high lift. Interesting that twelve sheets of the galvanized roofing I put up thirty years ago decided to rust while the others are holding tough. You can just make out the snow-capped San Francisco Peaks in the background.
