Raising the center post for the cabin is an event that has weighed heavy on my mind for many months. I put a lot of thought into the process and this is what I cam up with. Two Block and tackles lifted the post into place. The only probem is that I should have tied a rope to the end to keep it from going too far. If I were to do this again, there would DEFINITELY be a rope on the back side of the tree.
I used the car to pull the block and tackles and West helped to signal and keep an eye on things, making sure no one was hurt in the process. WARNING: Don't try to do this by your self. get a helpful neighbor to keep another eye on things.
