Peter, the main reason why we aren't renting a crane is because here they require us to be bonded. We do have several columns to put up but  are a bit shorter. I figured if I asked about the largest one, the rest would just follow suit. Being that we both work plus farm our time is limited so it would be good if we could have something onsite so we can work on it when we have some spare time. Hiring a crew is definitely out of our budget.
Roberto, thank you for the detailed explanation on how to build it. Very much appreciated.
Wow Travis great find! Now I may have to rethink the gin pole. Or perhaps a combination....

Thank you Roberto! We looked into the gin poles you suggested and think the tri pod with the gin pole may be the way to go. Since we have many more columns to install, maybe we will try to construct something easier to move around.

Hi everyone! My husband and I will be building an earth sheltered umbrella house here in western NY. We will be building it ourselves and are looking for ideas on how to lift and set into place our center column that will be approx 25' tall heavy timber with out having to hire someone with a crane. We've looked into block and tackle with a tripod of poles (as was used in the Coral Castle) and also the polyspaston with treadwheel as was used in midieval times. Do you have any suggestions?
