    And don't neglect tying the supporting beams together with 2x6 or similar. They may have softened and could roll out from under the building during the move. Of particular note is maintaining the width of the beams your pull cables are tied to. They will try to collapse to the center if not.

    It's built like a house, no skids. Joists and bands built over concrete footings and block piers.


    No slope to worry about.

    The ground isn't wet, it's just sandy and kinda soft.

    I think you guys have given me some great info, thank you. I'll let you know when we get closer and take some pics.
    If I gave a crap about what you think about my guns.....it was early this morning and I already flushed it!

    Could a crane be used to move this? No worries about the softness of the ground that way.

    1. Build wooden highway
    2. Jack it up
    3. Place rollers underneath
    4. Lower it onto rollers and Pull it
    5. Jack it back up and replace footings/piers

    We'd just drag it with quad if it ain't too big and the truck if it is too big. ;)
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    jack it up on metal frame, pull on skids made with 6inch steel pipe and round covers placed every 4 feet welded together and chained to a cat, a good dozer driver should be able to pull it.
    To those that paid for my freedom,
    I WILL NEVER FORGET.

    As with all statements I've made and All that I will make, please check your local laws to verify accuracy. (and if i'm wrong let me know as I like to be right in the future) After all I'm just some goofball posting on an internet forum.
