Ouch. sorry to hear it.

I won't be doing in beam walking as long as there is snow and ice. Not worth it.

I've all ready decided what ever the weather dictates is what progress will be made.

Not worth it to get hurt because of impatience.

Default building crew

having the RIGHT crew is important..one that works as a team and can just tell what needs to be done next..sometimes you need a crew chief that reads the prints and can direct if necessary. As you probably know,you can't push a job like this,it will progress as it can. That snow might slow you down a bit..Try to do an all-nighter by yourself and you will get hurt. Anyway,good to see you went with clear span on this.Lots of room.

LOL. Having the right crew is so important. Truer words have not been said..

I ended up having to do 4 different jobs all within the same moment of which were time-consuming in there own right. Plan manager is crucial as is a sorter/picker. I had assigned one guy when he was here to do that and he did a great job.

Eventually, I figured I had to stop listening to what these other guys were saying and just do what I knew was the right next step. Though they would chastise me when something did not work out based on their input. Sadly the only things that worked well was when someone did follow directions but that was rare. Many chiefs.. The problem is they are all old and independent sorts so it was extra nice when the owner of the LULL came by because the guys respected him so they would just follow his lead and word.

Sorting the materials into their own piles was crucial later to move faster.

Studying the drawings and manuals were needed as was identifing each little CL so I could then figure out how they were mounted. (The drawings and schematics of the items were only 2 D and terrible).

Everything worked out exactly as it was supposed to. Time, timing, help, tools equipment. etc, etc. Everything worked out exactly as it was to be.

20" of snow here now, so unless it clears up the building project will be on hold till the spring.
