Moving a Shed

Recently some friends of ours were getting rid of a shed, and Joseph needed one. After measuring it, they found it was the perfect, exact size for Joseph’s cement pad. But, there was a little more involved than just hauling the shed over with a truck. This shed had some Hardy paneling and was very heavy. You couldn’t just drag it onto the tow truck and hope for the best.

I’ll make a long story short. The guys braced the shed one night, and then Joseph hired a roll-back, tow truck to bring it over to his house.

The shed move was intense. Very intense. At one point, when it got over to Joseph’s house, and we were trying to get it into position–well, things got interesting. The tow truck guys were great, professional, and even though the temperatures were in the upper 90’s, kept at it.

Enjoy the pictures. They will tell the story. Believe me.


They braced the shed before moving.


Now, the day of the move!

  1. It looks like Mary and Anna did a lot of work, too. And I see Joshua in one of the pics. He’ll be working alongside the grown-ups soon!

  2. I know someone who moved a shed this way too ! It was a lot of work. And we had to move it across a big muddy spot,thankfully the tow truck didn’t get stuck . Looks like y’all had a great time!

  3. It is such a blessing to see a family come together on projects such as this. It inspires me to nurture this type of atmosphere and relationships in my own family. Thank you for the example!
