      Yes, brilliant. Was it a come along or a capstan and ox to lift it? A giant lever with cribbing?

      edit: Ah, the son lifted it. I guess it isn't as heavy as I imagined.

        Skootch--Yeah, I think it's only a few hundred pounds, but a little too heavy for me to lift one end with a simple rope and pulley. My son could lift one end and hold it for a few seconds while I slid in the spacer.

        Update--Gazebo is up and done!

        Having it up at eye level made it pretty easy to fix the damaged under-structure, and to replace the fascia boards, which were all pretty splintered.




        The end and back panels were also pretty busted up, but I was able to save them. The end pieces on all panels are new, as evidenced by the different color.








        Some new shingles,new stain, and a few landscaping tweaks, and we're better than new!






        Thanks for all the encouragement to fix it. I think it was the right choice.

        Now. back to the TR!

          I knew it! I knew you would get the gazebo back up and repaired in short order. And it looks great! Probably better than ever. Very nice, Ed.

            That looks really good. It needs a meditation bench, something to sit on.

              No worries, Walt. There likely will be one within a week or so!

                Funny you should say that, Walt. HQ signed off on the gazebo and just today sent down a new work order for a bench.

                  Great job, Ed. It looks really sharp!
                  Relaxing just to look at it.

                      I was thinking the exact same thing. And x brace in both directions.
