    I built a 8 X 12 storage shed on the drive with 3 - 4x4 runners. I laid wood planks on the ground and rolled it on pieces of pipe, by myself. Lucky I had the pipe & planks on hand. Or maybe you could find someone with a tractor that has forks.

    This is my 4x8 coop it you look on the left hand side you can see a trailer hitch. It is hard to make out but about in the middle of the coop there is a hub that accommodates a a 13" car rim and tire.
