The huge 8 meter long steel beam that has been in the garden for nearly 2 years is in place in the building.
For once I'm going to let the pictures do the talking
There were some tense moments!
A combination of muscular men and machine power lifted it into a horizontal position. Next to thread it through the opening in the stone wall at the front. Then carefully slide it along the specially constructed wood channel running through the building. Then rest it in position in the back wall of the building.
C'est facile n'est ce pas?
Here it is in all its glory
Next step is to remove the 2 remaining old wooden beams and the remainder of the floor.
Then floor construction in this building can begin :)
