|BEFORE anything was moved, we took off the front ramp. See the piles of wood for leveling.|
|FIRST THINGS FIRST...we need to raise the building up to the new frame height.|
|The building is put on "rollers"--see that orange piece of equipment.|
|Next...the bulldozer "pushes" it along on the rollers.|
|A jack is used to life the building and position the rollers.|
AND THEN...I had to attend a meeting so I missed the rest of the excitement until this picture after everything was completed.
We still need to put the ramp back on and connect the power. This probably won't happen until we finish digging the new foundation and laying the new power line. This means that Brown Bats is out of commission until sometime in Spring.
