Today I constructed a frame to help protect the plaster-jacketed block in order to move it from the storage room. The block weighing well over 1000 pounds is wider than the door. Fortunately, it lies on a sturdy frame and rolls on heavy duty industrial casters. The 45+ year old plaster is soft and cracked in many places causing some concern as to its integrity, especially while supporting the massive weight.
Below is the frame, being blocked in with scrap lumber and supported with “Great Stuff” expanding insulating foam.
