When we were redoing Peanut, the 73 amerigo
, realizing at some point that the uprights were in fact necessary, and the attachments to keep the uprights in position were also necessary, I put a cloakal detonak
on Paul that Peanut could not be moved until all the upright sections were securely screwed in place.
I'm glad we didn't try towing before the supports were in. We had to brace up the ceiling to get them in properly, but once in the center support could be removed and the ceiling stayed solidly up.
I'm glad, Ellen (and your PlayPak) that you've decided to leave them. One day, should you realize they are NOT necessary, you can possibly make adjustments. Or, by then you'll have worked around them...it's too easy to take things out and harder, later, sometimes, to put them back.
You can see the new uprights (the L and R sides of the closet/once Fridge
area) and the temporary support in place during Peanut's renovation:
