    Default Moving A Building W/Pictures!

    This is the old South Bend Remedy building in South Bend, Indiana. It is being moved for the second time! The first time was about 12 years ago, when it was one block north and 2 blocks east of this photo. The company that moved it was going to restore it, but never got around to it. So there is sat on a brand new foundation for a decade. Today, they moved it about 1 block south and one block east. It will be restored and used as the offices of a local historical organization.

    They pulled the wheel trucks UP one at a time and rotated them 90 degrees. Then these two wheeled loaders pulled it south with cables. It really only took one loader to pull it, as I saw the cable go slack while one of the drivers wasn't paying attention.

    This should belong in the safety post! There were no fewer than 3 day care groups watching from, in my opinion, way too close. Also, in all of these pictures you will notice that not one of the workers is wearing a hard hat or safety glasses. They frequently went under the structure while it was moving to adjust the steering. It was way too scary. I would not have taken pictures if it would have collapsed out of respect for the dead!

    Here the building is heading south and about to turn east. It actually took them about 3 or four hours to turn the corner.
