Turn Structure Upright and Check for Level
With the help of two or three friends, lift structure then slide into dug holes (Image 1). Use torpedo level to ensure cross brace is level with ground (Image 2). Tip: If not level, attach scrap 2x4s to bottom of vertical posts, shifting placement until perfectly level, then secure with exterior screws using drill.
Pour, Mix and Shovel Cement
Pour bags of cement into mixing tub (Image 1). Next, add water and mix using shovel. Once liquefied, use shovel to fill each of the two holes with cement (Image 2).
Ensure Level Crossbeam
Once cement has fully dried around each of the vertical posts, place level on top of crossbeam to ensure a perfectly level fit.
