Once the 2 pieces were connected we used ropes to pull it up. I put bolts in the sign and predrilled holes in the mill for it to fit into. Karen used a pole to push it away from the mill if it got caught on something (From a lower window). It took 5 people but we got it into place. It is centered on the center post inside the mill (Where I drilled the holes) but it doesn’t look centered on the outside?? Oh well, it has that country look.
