      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Garage Removal Options

Recommended Posts

stick

I have an old garage that I'm looking to get rid of. My bro-in-law said that he had some friends that wanted it for a boat-house, but they aren't committing to a time to come disassemble it and haul it off. I will need it gone sometime in the spring. It's about 22x12 (guess). I'm wondering what some possible options are. Does anyone know if an older garage is a hot commodity for anyone to come and remove to re-assemble at another location?

Also, would something like this be a candidate to talk to the GR fire department to have a training burn? I've always heard about things like that.

Does anyone have any suggestions or advice (or know of anyone that might be interested). I could send pix if interested. Email me at: jgrahek898 at msndotcom.

Depending on how accessible it is and the shape it is in, you might just find a buyer, if they can move the whole works. You might want to try and put it in the Manney's shopper want ads and see what happens. The GRFD would be another option but it all depends on how close to other buildings, powerlines, trees, etc, etc.

To contact the GRFD you could call the Grand Rapids Police Dept. 218-326-3464.

i have moved a 24 x 24 garage across town before.just gotta get some permits and watch the power lines you can haul it with out taking it apart.i guess it depends on how far you plan on moving it.what we did was we took 2 big junks of iron and braced the garage then we jacked and cribbed the garage up just enough to get a flat bed tow truck under it.then we lowered it on to the flat bed and hauled it away with me on top to watch for the power lines ect ect.once we got it to where it was going we had the drive back up on the slab and we jacked it up let the truck out and lowerd it on the new slab.we were only 2 inches off lol that was a luck thing im guessing.but anyway thats how we did it.

Hey stick, where is this garage located? I'll talk to my dad and see if he's interested. We've been involved with moving a garage previously so I'll see if he's interested.

It's on South Gama Beach Road which is the east shore of Sherry's arm on Pokegama.

Not an easy task. I own Grand Garages and I have seen this issue so many times, if it is really old and degraded you will be best to tear it down and build new. I have seen two of these that "fell to pieces" on the road during transit, now that is not a pretty sight!

Let me know if you need any help.

Thanks for the post Dan, and welcome to the site. It's a tad rickety, but the overall structure is in decent shape. I don't know if the slope of the driveway, the wires, and the general terrain would accommodate moving the garage in-tact. My main thought would be piece-mealing it by taking off half of the roof at a time, and then disassemble the walls and then haul it off. Is this beneficial for anyone, or should I just plan on renting a dumpster?

Any thoughts from here?

Honestly, it may not even be possible to "cut" the roof in half, but it all depends on how much time you want to spend sureing it up so it will survive the travel process.

Now here is the kicker, trying to find someone to take an old building is harder than it may seem. I once had a house that started as a garage. It was only 10 years old, so it had a lot of potential to be a home for a starter couple. I did find a guy and his girlfriend that wanted it, but when they got the bid of almost 10,000.00 to move it two miles...........I ended up getting 3 dumpsters and tearing it down. They were able to find an excavation contractor that would move it, but it was not much different in price.

Good luck!

      Thanks snowfighter. Coming up Dec 9 weekend.my brother took some fish outta little turtle the weekend of Oct 7 th. Sounds like from your end of the lake. Seen pics, some decent pike.

      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

      don't  give them any ideas!

       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.

      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
