beam me up scotty

We've been waiting for this day for so long. After rain canceled several attempts, we were finally able to raise the beams into place. Salvaged from the Landmark feed store on Stimpson Ave before it was torn down, these beams are one of the most stunning additions to our construction. They are massive! With Piper's careful maneuvering on the forklift (which rear wheel drives makes squeezing through framed doorways a challenge) we were able to set 6 beams into place. It seems as though every weekend has a forecast of rain and this one coming up is no different. We eagerly await a work party with friends to paint and set floors joists and continue framing.
