The construction of the crane began by this raising of the mast. It is 32 feet long so all of the top rigging had to be in place before it went up.
Lowering the very first log in place. All those rebar sticking up need to go into holes bored in the log. It took me a couple times to get it right.
Here I am maneuvering a log moving it to its final destination. It is hanging from the end of my crane. You can see Oscar, the chain hoist, near the top of the boom fastened where the block and tackle go on up to the top of the mast which is behind the camera.
Here I am attaching a chain choker to the end of a log that I want to pull out of the log pile and up the cliff to the house.
Here I am positioning the crane boom so that it is where I want it in order to pull the log up the cliff. I do that in part by adjusting the sheet you see me holding. It goes out of the building to my right, through a pulley attached to a tree, and from there up to the end of the boom.
The log has been pulled up and I am now maneuvering it into position on the upper roadway. The log is so covered with snow that you can barely make it out. At this point, it is still hanging from the crane choked at its center of gravity so it is easy for me to move.
