    I told the guy to take a look at it and let me know what it was worth to him, I never heard back...

    You could always just build yourself a hunting cabin! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Damn, I'm not that talented in construction...
    I have a farmer that's interested, but he said they are a bear to tear down without them collapsing, and you can't move them as is because they have no support once you take the floor away. What he said anyway

    Worked for a farmer in the late '70's and we moved 2 of them. There were legs/braces with wenches that we bolted on a couple of rings up, removed the lower rings and backed a low boy under them. It can be done if you don't have far to go.

    People move grain bins all the time. I've not done it but I could think of several ways to stabilize the bottom.

    They move them all the time. Buddy just took the roof off,, split one in half and hauled it 40 miles. Theres ways to brace them

    Maybe these guys aren't that ambitious, creative or handy, I don't know. All I know is that I'm not doing it for them!
