Beam me up

I spent yesterday doing chores in the holler. I mowed (hopefully, for the last time this season), I went into town to hand in a couple of old pallets for credit. And I finally got all the lumber stacked for building my beams. Each beam will be composed of three 2x12s, with 1/4" plywood sandwiched between. The first beam (from the building corner all along one side) will be 48' long.

Board meeting


When I got home, I found my lumber dolly had arrived. I ordered this to better haul boards and beams around the building site. When I'm not doing that, it can handle medium-sized logs. I just need to secure the back end to the dolly and the front end of whatever I'm hauling to my little tractor.
