The houses made it up the hill. Here is the first one, the playhouse.

The playhouse was given to us by a lady that stopped me walking around in Costco. She was very insistent that I should take her playhouse. The price was right; free. It was sitting on a concrete slab, so we had to jack it up and roll a floor under the house complete with floor joists and skids. This was a whole day operation. We rented a 16000 lb forklift and a flat bed full size truck (the ones hauling machinery around). This was all 3-4 years ago.

Today we are using our trailer and tractor along with a rented crane for the move here on the property.

I will just post the movie of loading the playhouse onto the trailer and some pictures. I ran out of memory at the end, but i will post pictures later of the final placing of the house.

If it goes too slow, just grab the round button on the bottom of the picture and pull it across to speed things up. (It is rather lengthy)

Nice job moving . I have to do the same thing in 3 or 4 months and a crane might be the way to go .
