I've asked my dad numerous times about how he plans to raise the walls for the second level, as well as deal with the large amount of building materials we'll have on site. When I'm not around to help, he'll need an extra set of "hands" to help him move materials and lift large objects.

His solution was to build his own forklift! Our New Holland tractor has a front loader attachment. He welded some hooks to the front of the loader, and bought forklift skids. The forklift skid assembly can sit anywhere in the yard, and when he needs to use it, he can simply lift it up with the front end loader, and viola... instant forklift!
