Like Father....Like Son........

As you may remember,
a couple of weeks ago
I got a van body for my tack room.

Youngest son thought he needed one for a garage/storage room.
So, Friday it was delivered.
Son, brought it to his house.
Saturday was work day!

The engineers are engineering the backing process.
(Brothers: Richard (L) and Rick (R))
My hubby is RICK

Engineer is not beyond picking up a shovel.

Checking for bottom clearance.
All the while I am thinking they should be checking the
Youngest son.
The best backer-upper ever!
He can even out back his dad with a truck and trailer!
The cutie across the street that was the advisor.

Youngest sons, wife!

Who is due to pop in about 4 weeks.
We are betting she will not wait that long.
We do know, it is a boy, and his name is:
Parker Jackson Brittain!

The way to work a DODGE!

Where the van is going to go.

The little guy going to wench the van back into place!
See the polaris hooked to the four wheeler?

Traffic has to maneuver around the road block.

Uhhh...guys....better look towards the sky!

Checking the clearance...NOW WHAT DO WE DO?

To close for comfort!

After backing the van body up, and digging out another foot or so of dirt,
this little Polaris is the one that "thought he could"!
But he couldn't!
So the big guns had to be brought in.
A Dodge with an 8000 lb wench on it.
In the mean time, I caught some other work
going on......
Is there something wrong with this picture?
Starting to slide into place.
Nail some wood to the house so it does not scrape.
Finally on the ground, and in place! Whew!

The only casualty is this part of the roof.
Took a jig saw to it.
Just could not dig deep enough to clear it.
The neighborhood adviser checking for proper paperwork!

That kind of stuff makes me soooo nervous!

I'm just wondering if taking some air out of the tires would have lowered it enough to miss the roof.

You are mentioned in my FRIDAY'S READER'S SPECIAL with a link to this site.

HAHAHAHAHAHahahahahahaha..hehehehe. Thanks for the great laugh! What a job! And all those advisors and engineers! Whew- good thing they were all there to see to it that box got in place properly!
I love the last photo- def. my fave. A very proper admin clerk if I've ever seen one- didn't let you get away with a thing out of place, did he?
Happy Friday and Thanks SO much for sharing!

Backing up is a true art form. And I can't believe they cut into the eaves! But those things do look like they would make mighty hand storage sheds!
