    Sean, I'll bet you're going to think twice about moving!

    Hey Sean

    I have placed wooden beams through the frame work of garage roofs and lifted truck engines. Just make sure you catch as many roof members as possable and go slow with a comalong.

    Ok, progress..

    but how many times have I said this??? hopefully this is it!

    I have made friends with the guy 2 doors down, who happens to be a builder! He just had a look at the garage and will get back to me soon with a quote for converting it into a room. He's renovated his 100+ year old villa and it looks great, so he definitely knows his stuff. I'll also get what they call in this part of the world "mate's rates". He also feels that once we get the garage door removed, we can hook the enlarger to the car's tow bar and lift it upright with the car and a few guys help. So, things are looking good

    hooray!

    <in the sincerely happy for you sense and not the smart-ass sense, I know what it's like to have an enlarger laying on its side unusable though I could actually pick mine up>
    Let's see what I've got in the magic trash can for Mateo!

    Ok, well the builder has given us the final quote and work should start within 2 weeks!

    He is also bringing a group of his friends over to raise the enlarger (possibly this friday). All they want in return is a large supply of beer. I'll try to document the "raising" and send pics as soon as it's up. Too bad my webcam can't reach because I could webcast it lol.

    Hmm... I've heard that New Zealand beer is pretty fair ... although I can't find it anywhere around here.

    Where did you say this was going to happen? ... and when?

    You could be right, not enough left for export! My favorite NZ brewery is:

    http://www.speights.co.nz/

    Someone out there must sell Speights. I guess I can export 6 packs of speights for $50US dollars

    The builder next door, 2 of his friends, and myself we able to raise her. Luckily they were big dudes cause we barely got it! We did this an hour ago and I am still winded! Once raised we had to place metal pipes under it to slide it into place because it wouldn't budge. I have attached a photo of her next to my lpl medium format color enlarger for scale. Sorry Aggie, no webcam broadcast of the raising, it's pouring down rain here. It's hard to really feel how big this enlarger is in the photo, it's almost 9ft tall. Work on the darkroom starts in 1 week!
