Yup, one of the hats I wear, I've got 35 years in that one.

This might interest you being a Navy guy, we moved this out of NWS Earl, fun project.

Yup, Me, "Uncle Mikey"(been with me over 20 years), and my "adopted sons" ( the red headed one is actually Mikes son). The kid with the dark hair and tan coveralls is now running the field crew and doing some of the engineering. They all get along very well, it's one of our primary rules, "if you can't get along, you can't stay", and they do work hard, there's nothing easy about house moving.

Thanks, the homeowner took the video, there are more on youtube.

That's probably the most people I've had on my rig at one time, but I could probably top that with some of the loads of "rusty iron" I've hauled home on it.

The home was moved to accommodate a foundation replacement and an increase in elevation, also to provide clearance to replace the bulkhead and docks. We relocated the home, with fireplaces and decks, to the back yard, once the new foundation was complete we returned it to it's original location.

That WAS interesting. Also, your video editor must be a fan of videos from the 1990's, what with all of that "stuttering", back-and-forth stuff.
