Those steel beams are huge!

This morning the noise in the back alley drew us out to see what was going on.  Huge steel beams that had been removed from inside were being loaded onto a truck to be taken away.  What a precision exercise it was.  The skill of the guys who are responsible for moving such weighty items is amazing.  Three men, one truck and the job was done in minutes!

Firstly the crane on the truck was used to drag the beams out of the building entrance to where the guys were able to safely hook it up.

It didn't take long at all for the beam to be swung ever so gently up over the truck to where it could be loaded for carting away.
