After hurricane Charley, though the main part of my mom's mobile home was sound there was water damage to the ceiling throughout due to roof damage. I built this inexpensive deadman to hold the new ceiling panels in place while I nailed them up. Used a small floor jack at the apex of the main frame to get the final inches of lift after one of my sons and I would put the panel on the plastic coated supprt frame which was securely bolted to the jack. It worked quite well.

Renting wasn't really an option as the replacement didn't all happen at once with no set time frame,taking place in fits and starts. The place was left structurally sound so work went slowly with mom living there, only making great forward strides when she went to stay with relatives for a few weeks here and there enabling me to really tear things apart while she was gone & get 'em back together before she returned. There just wasn't enough room for me to tear out all the old & put up the new with her staying there & I have a full time job to go to as well, not to mention being a single parent.
