Klamath Falls, Ore. --- A house is missing and deputies with the Klamath County sheriff's office are looking for it!

Sheriff Frank Skrah made the announcement during a press conference around noon on Tuesday, February 24th, "We had a complete home stolen. This isn't a motor home, this isn't a mobile home and this is a 'home.'"

It is not hard to move a home, but You need special tools and vehicles. But.. whole story is crazy, because WHO is stealing whole home?!

It looks like one of those "order to build" houses where it can be somewhat moveable in the sense that it can be assembled and disassembled fairly easily. It could be a custom house someone just built too but it has that cookie-cutter look and the designer obviously didn't spend to much time putting on any exterior finishes. I feel like most newer automobiles on the road are worth about as much as that "house" but stealing something of that size is obviously surprising

if that was a modular home it wouldn't be that hard. If not its already lifted off the ground that's the hard part for house movers. Just seems to me like somebody would have seen that driving down the road.

I can't believe there would be no tracks, witnesses or any evidence at all of it's disappearance. Definitely strange!

Are we sure they didn't just misplace it?

Maybe they should be looking for an old geezer and young boy scout with a S$&t ton of balloons.

You could back a trailer right under that house and cut the posts to leave it down. It probably has new siding and roofing on it now and an addition built on to disguise it.

Why would someone build a house that is so easy to steal?

There are some tweakers (meth addicts) in those woods. Given the opportunity, these guys will steal anything that's not nailed down; and of course left unattended, as these are a fearful and spineless breed of criminals.

That looks to me like a typical DIY throw together cabin, likely an abandoned, neglected, or intermittent project- on some land way up in the woods. The landowner obviously lives elsewhere.

The tweaker thieves are resourceful, and love tools, especially other peoples.
It is easy to see that some guys on speed could rip this place apart more easily than it was slapped together, probably within a night.
However, with jacks and a truck/trailer, it doesn't seem unreasonable that the entire cabin could be moved; I have seen bigger buildings than that rolled on logs to a new location.
Maybe the article has such details, I could not link...

The entire integral structure is not secured to a foundation: it's set up on pier blocks, essentially just suspended up in the air as a whole, secured with some bolts!

As big as those woods are, it is a small world, and whether they do anything about it or not, the Sheriff and Locals likely have an idea of who, or generally the group, that did this.

How come this is in skunkworks? Is that news channel fake?

I can see this happening alot in the future, with all those "mico" houses becoming so popular.

Tweakers eh?
the ones we have are enterprising enough...but a whole house? and leave no tracks? I don't think so....
It must be aliens....

Although I agree with your post I must point out that "Given the opportunity, these guys will steal anything that's not NAILED DOWN"

I would imagine that bieng a house it was nailed down!

Other than that agreed.

It's not that easy even with a bed lower than its existing height unless the flatbed had nice rollers because sooner or later it will pitch forward after removing the posts. It would be a process to prep and remove let alone leave the area unawares.

Although it's a little unusual on the grand scheme of things it is not that hard to steal this house.

Compared to some of the big heists in history(I'm thinking of tunnels into gold deposits and the like) it is a relativley simple operation.

Although I do not condone the theft of someones property I have to admit a certain twisted admiration for the balls of the perpetrators and wonder how the conversation that lead up to the crime went.

Anyhow, man I have seen it happen. They will pull apart huge abandoned machines, trailers, or vehicles just to get the metal to scrap.
They will take Department of Transportation equipment, such a lights and generators, if unattended, right off a lonely road at night. Nowadays, I am sure the rural road and construction crews, aware of this, secure their remote equipment or guard it.
These thieves will gut a house of all the wire and plumbing to sell for scrap metal...

Pull away trailers with recreation vehicles on them...

These guys are aliens, though. They're Alien to their humanity and own souls, as the speed sucks the good away from them.

Not to mention, it looks as though the ground elevations raises toward the back of the house in the photo, hence the need for posts in the front. I'm thinking it would have to have been disassembled.

I don't know how practical that would be. From the picture looks like metal sheeting roofing, 6x6 logs, etc. it's is possible though the logs are actual siding designed to look like that.
