I realize that house moving isn't a daily thing. Yet one would think that there would be more than 1 person in half a state that did such a thing. Our local phone book, that covers south centralKansas has 2 businesses listed, yet one is located in S. Dakota. Word of mouth seems to work just fine for one business not listed. I placed a call into that company last week, no word back.
However I did manage to get a hold of one of the local companies. He has been moving houses for 50 years. He drives while his 2 sons and 4 grandsons do all the heavy work. How wonderful. Fist off he wanted measurements. So my husband and I found ourselves back out at the farm house with a 20 ft PVC pipe. The highest point of the house, foundation to peak, is 19 ft. Problem. This height means moving power/cable/phone lines. The truck the house will be moved on will give it another 4 feet. The gentleman on the phone informed me that it might not be worth moving it. But he will be out sometime this month to look at it. Meanwhile he will keep an eye out for other houses that would be good for us.
Did I mention that I want this house?
