HA! It's a hillbilly house that Frank LLoyd Wright would be proud of!

Sure looks big enough that it should have been a double wide. I worked on a crew that delivered and set up mobile homes one summer while in college. In Ohio you have to get a route provided by the State Police before you do anything. Looks like whoever gave them permission to cross that bridge screwed up big time. Sure gonna cost somebody a whole lot of cash.

I've made fun of hillbilly houses too, but they are making them a whole lot nicer nowdays. I saw one assembled on the discovery channel that had trusses that were hinged and laid down for transport. Once in place they raised the hinged rafters and it had a very nice looking roof line. Much steeper than traditional 'hillbilly homes'.

I must be a mind reader. Somehow I know that everyone there is thinking "Now what?".

If you were the engineer in charge, how would you proceed to get it out of there? A crane?

That is exactly what I was going to say, how do you get it off there without breaking it. More pics might be in order here, how did they do it?

I would jack up both ends of the house and put some tall "I" beams spanning the creek and plank it with some heavy timber and pull it off with a ramp on the downside (and some vertical supports going down into the creek). Cheaper than a crane, which would be pretty pricey for the size needed to take that out...

That is what I call the pucker factor. I wonder if the driver had to change his underware?

heres a thought, the frame of the house is obviously more than what was there, take the house off and leave the framing for the bridge. Next time take the longer route!

another thought, I dont want that house now, wonder what stress that might have caused on the framing, walls, roof, plumbing etc.

I dunno - that doesn't look so bad to me.

I mean, you never have to worry about your teenager denting the garage door...
And no one's gonna complain that your tools are taking up too much room in the garage when it's supposed to be for cars...

Exactly, I'd check for cracks in the ceiling.. you know that thing had to have suffered some sort of stress.. it's a wonder it didn't split in half.

What do you mean .. plumbing. Everything just drops straight through the floor into the creek. County sanitation department is going to have a fit, not to mention the water quality natzis!!!!

I'm with fogtender, jack it up, steel beams underneath, plank it, attach wheels and pull it off.

Just my thought.
