The guys that jacked the roof were great. That hole janga thing in the middle was on one jack. With all the other jacks no big deal. But it did look rediculous. The hard part was when they took the pressure off of it. A lot of people had to grab things fast.

What was the reason for raising it as opposed to erecting it in the air?
We could only drive the lull on one side of the structure because of errosion control and the shoreland protection, DES. Because the structure is right on the 50 foot lake buffer. So we would have needed a crane to lift the beams on the far side and we could not get a crane in the area so we came up with the solution to build it low so the lull could reach the far side and then jack it. It also made everything much faster not needing ladders for everything.
