Frame Raising With A Crane

A boom truck with 60 feet of reach was able to raise this frame, as the bents were only 26 feet wide and the truck was able to drive right up to the side of the foundation.

The first bent was lifted using heavy duty strapping and flown into place, where it was braced to the subfloor with 2x4s. The crane operator for this raising was very smooth on the controls, which helped get the whole frame up in one day.
