How to move a yurt down the road, floor system and all!!

So we moved the yurt on Saturday, platform and all!!  Thanks to the skills of our friend Bump we moved the yurt and entire floor system without dismantling it at all. Although we did take the wood stove out, which probably weighs as much as the yurt itself, the rest rolled into it's new spot as a whole. It was quite the project and we all slept soundly Saturday night.

Bump put the finishing touches on the cradle.

We mounted the cradle and jacked the yurt and cradle clear of the posts.

We used some milled timbers as makeshift ramps lowered her on some rollers and away she slid!

Almost to the driveway! Smooth sailing after that right?

The aftermath...

Nice and easy, here comes the corner....

Well, the corner could have gone smoother. But we're still on the rollers. I mean after all it's not really a yurt sized road.

About now Bump and I are getting a little tired of carrying trees from back to front, repeat, shudder, twitch...

But, we made it! Bruised battered and sleeping well tonight.   Thanks to everyone who helped make this happen! Especially Bump!
