1-Story Building TO BE MOVED OFF school district property

REMOVAL:  Building is currently in use and will continue to be occupied through the last day of school on May 27.  Removal window is very short: Friday, May 28 through Friday, June 4. 

LOCATION: 1013 3rd St, Waubun, MN (Parcel 19-024-0303). Building is near the corner of Main St & Pleasant Ave (MN HWY 113). 

DESCRIPTION: 30' W x 62' L x 15'H, approx. 1800 sq. ft. This is NOT a manufactured, double-wide, or trailer-style home. Original 2x6 framed structure was moved in sections and set on blocks in early 1990s. THERE ARE NO FLOOR JOISTS; instead, a floating, non-structural floor was built on top of the slab. After this, interior walls were framed up and finished on site. Interior walls are built on top of the floating floor, not on blocks like the outer walls. In 2016, siding was replaced and roof was re-shingled. See pictures for condition and layout. Sale includes doors, windows, and general fixtures: baseboard heaters, cabinets, toilets, sinks, lights, etc. 

HOUSE MOVING COMPANY: Winning bidder will arrange a separate contract with a house/structure moving company. NOTE: This is NOT a manufactured, double-wide, or trailer-style house.  All moving costs are the responsibility of the winning bidder. Neither the School District nor Johnston Trading Company are responsible for any moving costs and make no guarantees on structure's mobility. Winning bidder is responsible for removal of everything above slab level and may not demo or "part out" the house.  Auctioneer can put serious bidders in touch with our moving company contact, but you may also contact, receive quotes from, and hire your own company.  Costs & estimates will vary greatly based on mileage, power lines, highway routes, permits, conditions at your final site, and companies you contact.

$1000 REFUNDABLE PROJECT DEPOSIT: Johnston Trading Co. will require a separate project deposit of $1000 in addition to paying your total K-BID invoice (bid amount, buyer’s premium, and sales tax) within 48 hours of auction's closing. Deposit is refundable at conclusion of move, but will be forfeited if building still remains on School District property on Saturday, June 5, 2021.

INSPECTION: Contact auctioneer (Kelley @ Johnston Trading Co.) with questions or to schedule an appointment for an inspection. Same-day and/or weekend inspections are not available. PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE SCHOOL DISTRICT! This building can be seen from the street, but you must have permission from Johnston Trading Co. to go onto school property.  To help slow the spread of COVID-19, a face covering is mandatory during inspection appointments. Call/text/email Kelley: (218) 849-7504 or

COMMUNICATION CLAUSE: If at any point before removal deadline, winning bidder is non-responsive to e-mails, texts, or calls for a period of 14 days, the auctioneer reserves the right to consider the entire lot abandoned and forfeited.
