Barn roof material pick up

picking up a load of metal for the barn

Our 14 foot long metal roofing panels came in today.

The guy we hired said he won't have much trouble walking the material across the creek and back to the barn.

Yes...he actually has seen the creek and driveway first-hand when he came out to give us the estimate. I'm guessing he has plans to make some sort of stretcher so a guy on each end can lift maybe 4 or 5 at a time?
