At long long last, with many mistakes, false starts, re-trenchments, near-disasters, delays, breaking equipment, and whatnot else.....the chandelier is now IN ITS PROPER PLACE!

Yes, Tanglewood's Crown has finally been installed.

I had decided last week that after many trials and problems over the last nine months (great Scott has it been that long!?!?!?) I needed to stop with what, in retrospect, where half measures.  I'd tried a manual winch and I'd tried an old-fashioned come along, neither one of which worked properly while attached to the scaffold itself.  I finally decided to completely move everything and mount the winch to the railings outside the big door.

So after a brief bout of problems early in the morning with a pulley that decided to fall apart, I finally just checked everything about four more times, hooked everything together--and up it went!

I had initially thought that the chandelier was a tad low, but after a couple of hours with it I decided otherwise.

The. Chandelier. Is. Up.

HUZZAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tomorrow I'll caulk everything in properly and get the shades properly installed.  For now, I simply wish to bask in the glory...….   ;)

Here you can see it's going to go Way Up There.
Look at it all ready to pull up....
Partway up!
At long last!
All lit up! Gorgeous!
