    Garage moving (3).jpg

    This set of pictures is from 1988. Needed a garage and got a good deal on this one for $50.00 but it had to be moved several miles up the highway. My friend Paul in the yellow jacket had fun giving a hand!==c

    The building is 18' X 30' :oops:

    Got what I thought was all the proper permits, contacted the local fire department, electric company, highways maintenance and the RCMP of the time of the move. Everything went well. Later I take these pictures to where I obtained the moving permit. Laughed a bit when they told me the truck could not be in the garage when the garage was moving :)!

    I think the house truck from that other thread still wins.

    Reminds me of the time we moved a chicken coop down the road. Only had about a mile to go and it went well but on the way home another neighbor stopped me and asked if I could use a shed. Yes, I could. After unloading the coop, then we went back for the shed. That was a nice day. If my memory is still any good, we used one of the John Deere's to do the pulling.

    My dad does all maintenance on the road they live on for about a quarter mile down to the highway.
    He needed a shed to keep the tractor in & my mom wouldn't allow one out front where it was visible (and logical), so dad designed it so it could be picked up by the tractor hydraulics & driven out front for the winter snow blowing season & then out back a few hundred yards for the rest of the year.
    Worked like a charm except of course you can't see much of where you're going and the front wheels tended to be off the ground for most of the trip. Wish I had a pic.
    Come to think of it, dad is kinda like a Red Green who's bizarre fixes & creations actually work...
    Also he uses foil tape instead of duct tape.

    I was riding on BC Ferries Quadra Queen II today and just had to take this picture.
    The phone box at the stern of the ship is for communication to the bridge. It could not be more RED GREEN; held shut with a bungee cord and the bungee is wrapped with grey duct tape! :mad:
