Perry Clabbatz, of Spartanburg, PA, recently earned his 15 minutes of fame by shooting video of his neighbors moving a house. What made the move special was the manner in which it was done; Clabbatz’s neighbors are Amish, so instead of using hydraulic jacks, rollers, and a motorized vehicle, they enlisted 80 men from the local Amish community to give the building the old heave-ho. After lifting the house by hand they carried it about 50 feet and placed it onto a new foundation. This method of moving buildings is more common than one might imagine. A quick search of YouTube turned up examples from around the world--and those are just ones we have video of. Here are three such videos from the USA: the first shows Clabbatz’s neighbors moving a house, the second an Amish community moving a barn in Wisconsin, and the third a group of non-Amish volunteers moving a barn in Nebraska in the late 1980s. The estimated weight of the barn in Nebraska was 20,000 pounds so each of the 350 volunteers who lifted it had to carry approximately 57 pounds.
