today I was once again remembering some of my major events and one that I really enjoyed being a big part of was a re enactment of moving one of the log buildings at UCV, we were required to use only methods used at that time, and it was open to public scrutiny and admission.
Once again I had to obtain accurate research material and then interview someone who had actually moved buildings and was still able to add hands on knowledge to the whole mix
I was fortunate to interview an older gentleman, who had moved large barns and houses, I was really interested in the power source he used and the equipment and methods and obstacles he may have had to overcome as he worked through some of his projects
You might be interested in what I found out talking to him!!!
Well unfortunately I have to go but will be back to continue---
