Things look a little different with the addition of a second level above the main floor deck. The beam and roof/deck was put together over a weekend. In this picture you can see temporary supports used to get the beam in place and hold up the structure before the 6x6 posts are added. This temporary 2x4 support system worked really well for getting the main deck structure in place. This system was refined a bit for the raising the second level beam and worked really well to stabilize it was raised into position. The next step is to get the permanent support timbers installed.
