A bit rude of the person filming this. The Amish have religous beliefs against having their pictures taken.

Even just their feet.???

Ya know.... I had not seen your reference.... just one on TV news that only showed all their feet as they were standing inside the house (same house I'm pretty sure). It looked like a big caterpillar (the bug not dozer) was moving the house.

Maybe the news intentionally only used that shot because of the religious belief?

It's OK. Most people aren't aware. It's sort of a problem near here in Lancaster County. Sadly, the "English" have turned the Amish community into a tourist attraction for their own gain. It's not unusual to see cars with out of state plates stopped on the roads with tourists jumping out snapping pictures of Amishmen working their fields with horsedrawn equipment, or of buggies driving around.

I like it, they got the job done for sure!

I'd like to see how they had the inside rigged up, what they were grabbing on to. I'm sure that just 2x's attached to the studs as a handle wouldn't cut it.

My guess would be webbed straps, perhaps even leather straps, run under the joists with loops to go over their shoulders. That's how heavy beams and things are moved for barn raisings.
