Yep, Harold, it is going to be east, right behind the present structure. The county pointed out that we are allowed two residences on a land parcel this size, and we have considered renting out the old shack. But no, I don't want peoples dogs barking at me, and their kids digging holes in the flowerbed and 'my car won't start, can you drive me to the dentist' bullshit.

People who rent, for a large part are people who will never get their shit together, and I don't want to deal with it, so the old shack is coming down.
I want my western view back.

Gerry, best to plug the well before burying.
2B stone to above SWL, then 18" of bentonite clay pellets, than a 2' - 3' concrete plug.
Have done a few well plugs over the years, better to do it now than have problems from the water table being contaminated.
SWL - STATIC WATER LEVEL. before someone asks.
Dan.

That is really going to be a challenge getting a 22 wide turned into your drive.

Yes it is
But if a tractor and scissorneck trailer can do it, I can only hope the driver is as good.
There may be some trees harmed in the making of this movie.

It may be easier to bring in a couple loads of coarse rock to make a temporary entrance. Put some of that heavy landscape fabric down, dump the rock on it and clean it back up when done.

They do it all the time for utility/bucket trucks in the east.

Coarse crusher rock works best as the edges lock together.

"Proper setup of a mobile home "

Set the handbrake, crank down the jack, and turn on the propane ?....

I was thinking the same thing. Free heat for the new house!

I was our driving around the area to check out options. Think I will come in from the east side. I can go around to the oil well and past it to the gate in the north east corner of my property.
Or, plan 2, Enter the plowed field before my place, a bit north, very wide gate, and then across the plowed field and cut the fence into my place.
Got to have a chat with the neighbour about it.

Do they still move those units with a short single axle tractors? When they moved my grandparents unit 30 years ago, I was quite impressed with the turning short radius the tractor had. Towing a mobile through a power field may be interesting. Narrow tires and soft ground. If you can get it moved when the arctic pavement is still in place, that eliminates that issue.

Winter is the time to do this. That is a important reason to do it before breakup. I sure am not going across his crops in summer.
And yes they still use those little bobtail rigs with a baby A frame on them. And also, depending on who you hire and for how much, they also have steerable dollies.
That is the next river to cross, after the county BS is done.
I'm beginning to see this thread will have wheels, so maybe it should have been in the shop construction area.
We paid in full today, and I am happy to say we have no buyers remorse, but draining most of the free cash out of the old sock is always sad. We are seeing an economic grassfire coming and we were planning on buying gold, but this is as good a hard asset, and more useful in the short term. My company has money and accounts receivable in it yet, so it is going to foot the moving and setup fees as a payment for office space
