Not surprised they pulled out, the stress on the eye bolts was twice the force being exerted by the tractor.You should have put straps right round the shed, and used stretchers to avoid crushing.

I tried that, 1" sampson braid around the shed and still no luck. I think the slight incline it has to come up is the major factor. Going to jack it up to grade level and then try again with some rollers.

What a bunch of sorry ass looking hardware. It's a good thing you don't cruise in a sailboat . I say rollers.

Anything new with Squirt ?

Still AWOL. He was spotted this week back near the cottage he started at. We're still leaving food and go back a couple times a week to see if we can spot him. Other than that, he hasn't invited himself into anyone elses trailer or cottage. When it gets cold he'll change his tune! Everytime I got up I half expect the silly bugger to come loaping out of the woods and say "ok lets go home now".

There was a crooked man and he walked a crooked mile, He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile. He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse. And they all lived together in a little crooked house.




The good news is the shed is now 2 feet closer to the house! It was coming along fine till the planks underneath that the pipes were rolling on broke. Time to call in the heavy equipment!

Just found out another model was built in Turkey. This one was a pro built hull and finished by the owner.

No! *lol* The local excavation company was supposed to send someone over Thurs night with a backhow to move it. Buggers never showed up. Will try again Tomorrow.

Last week the rain washed out a block and it fell back into the ditch. I jacked it up again and removed the planks. Was just about to lock the door when it slipped off the blocks again and slid even farther back into the ditch! *lol* I don't think "building mover" is a prerequisite for boatbuilding!

Ok, my fault. I didn't hear the dumptruck driver. Tunes too loud in the basement. Anywho he drops the first load of fill 20' from the ditch!

Anybody wanna venture a guess as to how long it's gonna take to move this load by hand?

I presume you have a wheel barrow and need to spread it out along the trench then cover with dirt and grow grass. It starts out fine but after the first 20 wheel barrow loads it gets harder. It's the tonnage not the distance. If you have enough beer on hand you won't get it done in a day. You are going to hurt after you are done and for several days. Make sure you have extra beer!

Nice neat pile though.
