Default How to Move a Barn

Herman Ostry bought a piece of land with a barn near a creek in Bruno, Nebraska. A flood put 29" of water into the barn, and he wanted to move it to higher ground. One if his sons estimated the barn weighed 19,000 lbs (9 tons). Figured it would take (344) people with each person lifting 55 lbs. to move barn. They made a grid of steel tubing with handles attached to the barn so each could lift.
The town of Bruno, Nebraska planned this move as a part of their centennial July 29-31, 1988

I wish they would have shown a detailed view of the steel tubing they constructed to pull this off.

Default How to Move a Barn

That's one way to move it I guess! I wonder if the considered rollers too?

It was pretty interesting endeaver, but as ghocevar pointed out, it seems it would have been easier to just use rollers after re-enforcing of the walls. That had to be a huge project to build and install the metal structure (for 344 people to all have hand holds), let alone the effort to convince the town to help out. Made for a great video though!

Now that's "Getting Er Dun".

Couldn't help it. Had to spell "done" like that.

If you think that's cool, look at the video that's linked on yours when it ends. A guy moves a pole barn by himself, and that's not the only big thing he moves.
