I don't think so. When Frank Lyold Wright built Falling water, he cantilevered one section of the home out over the stream. The workers at the time told him he needed to reinforce it but FLW got belligerent and started screaming that he was the great American architect and he knew what he was doing.

One of the hardest lessons in life is to learn to listen to other people...especially the people of the construction trades...they know what they are doing because they do it every day.
As for the house, apparently the movers never heard of the national bridge load standards huh?
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
