    Is this baby an oversized load?

    its on skids, they can come-along it onto the goosenecked trailor....

    but it is 5' high, 12 feet wide, and 24feet long........oh my!!

    its old fashioned siding, tongue and grooved, has a steel roof, and plywood floor...

    anyone familiar with Ohio laws? what is a permit? is a coop a piece of farm equipment?

    new owners want to BURN it!!

    use your chicken math!! how many chickens can i add, if i can only get i to my house? 24 miles, country 2 lane road?

    DID I MENTION IT'S FREE? FREE? I REALLY WANT IT~~ HELP!!

    my coop is similar dimensions coming in at about 12' W by 12' L by 7' H.

    Steel structure wrapped in coated chick wire, chain link door and sheet metal roof...can you say HEAVY !!!!!

    We are in Texas and I didn't even think about permits and such we just moved it (without incident) [​IMG]

    The farmer I bought it from rigged it up on his flat bed trailer and towed it on over.....about 30 miles, some HWY but mostly 2 lane country roads.

    The biggest problem he had was mailboxes [​IMG]

    Adventures in moving....Good Luck !!!
