Rotate Shed


Any ideas on how to rotate this shed? I'd like for the doors to be facing foward with right side of shed agaist tree and left side against fence. Thanks in advance!

depanding on how it is sitting/secured tot eh ground, I'd probably either; pick it up, lever it up, or just pull and push it with a small tractor. you could do the later with a truck and some old tires as bumpers.

I think you'd need a bunch of very strong guys to lift that up.

Easiest way is to just empty it, and get 6-8 guys to lift and spin ( like we used to do to VW bugs back in college)

If that's not practical get about 4 legths of 4" Sched 40 pvc pipe. lift or use a car jack to put pipe under the shed. once you get all the pipe under it you can push the shed around you yard, just have someone to grab the pipe that is left behind, and move it to the front as you go

Two hand truck dollies (strong ones), one at either end will do an effective job.

Last house I took my 4wd SUV out back & moved the shed with a rope & some fence pipe as rollers
Used a tire to push one corner back

With the 5 pier blocks I can see under it, (as C.P. said) all the options are correct, after you set new piers to correct grade elevation and location.
Dave, did you even read posts #2 and 4? Or Willie's last post........

Be safe, Gary

A friend of mine moved a shed from the front to the back with this method. Jacked it up with a car jack. Installed PVC pipes under it and rolled it. Worked good.
