1. A method in constructing an elevator, in which the elevator includes at least one elevator car movable in a hoistway, a first movable support structure, a separately movable roof structure, and a lifting arrangement, the first movable support structure being separate from the at least one elevator car, in the hoistway above the at least one elevator car, the first movable support structure being configured to support said at least one elevator car, the separately movable roof structure being, separate from the first movable support structure, in the hoistway above the first movable support structure, and the lifting arrangement including a second movable support structure mounted in the hoistway at a first mounting position above the separately movable roof structure, the method comprising:
providing the at least one elevator car to be used for transporting passengers and/or goods;
lifting the first movable support structure in the hoistway;
lifting the separately movable roof structure higher in the hoistway to create greater space between the separately movable roof structure and the first movable support structure; and
manually moving the lifting arrangement by manually moving the second movable support structure upwardly in the hoistway to a second mounting position above the first mounting position while the separately movable roof structure is supported by walls of the hoistway.
