Really looks to be more like 14' tall now. Also looks like must be an overhead door on each end. Not it makes much difference in how to move it .

My take too, but then another 2' above the door, thus guessing side walls are 14'. door on the opposite end looks to be a 10' from outside picture.

Re: Moving Building Several Feet


I see 3 options.
1- Build a new foundation & walls. Then have a crane move the roof. If the roof is to big, cut it in half.
2- Disassemble & relocate.
3- Burn it.

Ok.
Keep wall on left in place.
Deskin all metal on walls.
Place new posts to left of original wall, at perfect location to land gable truss roof system on.
Decouple roof. Boom it over with big ass crane, landing on original left wall, which is now the right wall, and landing on new left wall.
Put wall metal back on.
Leave original slab and original right hand posts for disgruntled property owner to deal with.

If concrete slab is an option, cut the posts at the bottom of siding, move entire building onto a slab with proper post bases bolted in, easy peasy.

Edit: I see it has to go sideways, should be easy enough as described above. Who put the property stake there? Maybe have it surveyed?
That was my idea as well. Set it on post brackets

Re: Moving Building Several Feet


You really need to do some leg work and find out what the issue is with the property. By searching the pics you posted I found the listing.

In 2 years the price of that property has gone down by more than 50%

12/28/2018 $52,500

1/13/2017 Sold $123,000 -- $100 Public Record


Looking at the satelite view, I don't see enough room to move that closer to the house, most zoning won't allow a building that close, but you won't know until you ask them.

Here, by looks of that pic, he'd have trouble getting permit for yard shed

I've worked with Rick Michaels before. Specializes in "special permits" for home owners now.
He isn't cheap.

Just thought I'd mention that the property was taken off the market Jan 3. So one way or the other, this horse is probably dead. :

Pole buildings rely on the poles being set into the ground for lateral strength. You'd have to re-engineer, add shear, etc.

I suppose pole barns are all about lowest cost to build. Plus those poles are generally surrounded by a slab and stay pretty dry, so odds are they are going to last a very long time anyway.

Maybe Kowalski picked it up. You can't find a house that cheap around here.

Thing is the slab should not be tight to the poles, have seen where the slab moved and pulled the poles down with it. This was in a case where coils of roof metal was stacked at the out walls.

I see that. Near the end he says the steel provides all the shear needed.
