 Advice & Insight

Friends - I feel bad about continuing to come to you guys for thoughts, but I have really appreciated the ideas I have gotten here so far. Here is my current question: remembering that we are building a small log home, we need something primarily to move the logs around the property. If it could help raise them up the walls, even better. If it could be used for other purposes later around our 11 acres, that's fabulous. I now have the following possibilities: 1) to buy a recently re-built Ford 5000 gas tractor with either a new bucket on it or a really hefty set of something like hay tines (this tractor could definitely lift my logs for moving purposes and probably handle some of the lifting for the lower walls); 2) to rent a 1950s diesel boom truck for the duration of the project for $1000 (the truck is pretty study and has a boom that could raise logs to at least 14', but it is not terribly maneuverable and might prove difficult to operate when the weather gets wet; or 3) to buy a log arch for $200, lift the logs with a block & tackle system and haul them with my '72 CJ5. Any thoughts?
