Viral video of Amish picking up and moving an entire house

You have to hand it to the Amish. No crane. No machinery. No problem.

    must be admired!

  • Phyllis Waterstraat-Holman

    Where there’s a will, there’s a way! Amazing!

  • franko35758

    how did they do that???

  • Timothy53

    I understand not wanting to use so-called “modern” machinery, but cranes, jacks, rollers are all quite ancient machines, far pre-dating the Amish. This was just a stunt.

      Ever hear the term “manpower.” I have seen six men lift a car right up and those were strangers who just stopped to help.

      • Paladin

        Help? Six of us lifted a buddies Volkswagen off the street and onto the sidewalk as a prank in high school. He had to explain that to the traffic officer.

          Five of us moved a Fiat Spyder into a dorm hallway as a prank in college.. The owner was on a drunk and couldn’t remember the weekend; he had NO idea how he got the car into the hallway, or how to get it out!!

    • Paladin

      Low tech and ‘ad hoc’ for sure. I am sure they had to reinforce the interior and provide holds for the men to bear against. A little more ingenuity in using jacks and rollers would have negated all this. But hey you know the Amish and their parties.

      A Stunt? No way.
      Timothy, you apparently no nothing about the Amish or Amish ways of doing things. While I have never seen this done before, it does not surprise me one bit… being that I grew up in Lancaster County, Pa, a good part of which is Amish Country.

    Amazing effort!

  • Bobby Teague

    Why not just build it ON the slab>?

    • Robbysh

      Maybe they just poured the slab to replace a pervious foundation? The house looks old.

  • Esther Williams

    There’s no serious difference between today’s liberals and their socialist, marxist, and communist ancestors.

  • Ronald R. Johnson

    We could learn a lot from the Almish and I bet it will be standing for a long time too!

  • Esther Williams

    Modular construction; very well done.

  • Ron Roy

    An other woman gone bad. I’m sure liberals must love this. She’s happy now but hell awaits.
