Think packing up and moving is stressful? Imagine moving the entire building - brick walls, chimney, furniture - the whole lot - in one piece! Sound tough? Well it's nothing compared with the daunting challenges faced by the extreme engineers of "Massive Moves". In this dramatic series, we follow the adventures of huge movers across land as they transport monstrous structures that were never meant to leave their foundations. From a colossal cathedral to a humongous homestead and even an entire town, nothing is off limits.
Doug Pilcher and his wife Mary built their dream home together in 1977. Today it is worth three-quarters of a million dollars. When built, it was set in the middle of the countryside. Today the city limits are way beyond the house and housing developments are encroaching on its views. After 34 years living there and having raised their family in it, Doug and Mary are reluctant to leave their treasured home and move elsewhere. So they call in experienced house truckers Kerry Neufeld and his crew, to save their beloved home and move it 5 miles away. This trek won't be easy. The house will be extremely awkward to lift due to its massive size and 100 ton weight. Rough terrain, power pylons and narrow country roads also threaten to make this move extremely difficult.
