How much does a house weigh?
Question # 2:
How much weight can a rural two-lane bridge hold?
Question # 3:
WOULD THIS BE COVERED BY
OR, DOES IT COME UNDER ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE?

Thanks for posting that, Paul. I shared it with my engineering department at work, which will probably be used in one or more safety meetings. Topics: “Expect the Unexpected”; or “ASSUME makes an ASS out of U and ME”.
pity they don’t have a degree in common sense, the smart always seem to be the dumbest .
I say, cut the ends off and now you have a nice covered bridge.
you took the words out of my mouth, Mitch.
I really like the last photo,all them standing there,arms crossed ect. with that”Now What?” look.
They could gut the house interior, cut openings in both ends and turn it into a covered bridge. It may need some steel reinforcement to the foundation though, and a sign that says no vehicle over 8-feet.
This option would be easier than removing the house and re-building the bridge.
BTW: Sorry to expand on your idea, Mitch. Even though you might be joking, I’m being serious. serious.
Most (if not all) bridges have a weight limit posted (I check it when my girlfriend’s in the car). You don’t need an engineer. You need to be capable of arithmetic.
Hell…. call it good, put a deck on it and sell it as lake front property!!
