Gary, posted elsewhere, I believe, the original plans for Flightcraft were to do major rehab to the structure. After all, it is about 70 years old, the underpinnings could be older.

Where are you? What is your "normal" access? Some companies have a landing craft, just drive the delivery truck on and off.
