    It looks OK, but what about the structural integrity?

    As was mentioned, it is not that unusual to move a house, I recently saw a series of programs about that; some of the houses were ancient, some more modern. some moved a long way, some just up the road.

    All sustained some damage, most of it just cracking due to differential movement. It looks as if the Thais have managed to do it with much less sophisticated equipment.
    I have reported your post

    Well done, house moving the hard way

    Quite an impressive achievement, glad I was not there to watch it.

    Well I went there a couple of weeks ago so it's been nearly 3 years, all still standing but needs some more work on the garden.

    Looks a lot better than I expected.

    Given that I expected 6 or 7 Isaaners to be squashed under a few tonnes of cheap plaster and wood.

    Any story on why they moved the house 20 metres?

    Did a stone who appeared in a magical hole in a field tell them too?

    maybe for sale to some unsuspecting buyer in the future when it's all tidied up. amazed it didn't collapse like a house of cards.
    would expect a few leaks when the rains arrive.
    ye, where there's a will there is a way .
    did he have noisy neighbours or wot ?

    Owning our own house in Thailand has given me a lot of faith in Thai methods of building, repairing, etc. Whatever the Thai workers have done for us it was always to our 100% satisfaction.
    Congratulations on your project and thanks for sharing it.

    A very old thread but I guess it's better to use this one than creating a new topic.

    My wife recently told me we could get a piece of land next to the river (instead of 100 meters from the river) on my mother in law's land. We've already build us half a house now so I thought, why not move this half house to this new beautiful spot 100 meters away? They've moved the huge temple in our village the same way so why not a simple wooden house?

    To cut the crap, my questions are: Does anyone know a company in Isaan (Surin) capable of moving a 8x8m 1 floor wooden house on 1 meter stilts 100 meters? And what would be the price of such a move? Someone told me they moved the temple for 50k but I can hardly believe that. Anything under 200k would do I guess (that's what's I've paid till now for this half house).
