Fox sign ready for transport

After waiting almost twelve weeks for a permit to install the Fox and Hounds Pub sign it is at last time to do the install. Todays task was to first build a giant easel on the flat bed trailer. We used welded steel for maximum strength.
I used my neighbor’s trusty little forklift to ease all 2,450 lbs of it onto the cradle. 
While Sarah painted the areas previously covered (and unfinished) I cinched it to the trailer good and tight.
It will sit in the yard one more night before it’s journey home.
 I’ll post some pictures tomorrow of the lift in progress as well as some shots of the sign in it’s new home.
