JEREMY Pat­ter­son and his fam­ily at­tempt to move an 18th-cen­tury home 8km down the road when a new se­ries of Heavy Haulers launches tonight. Pat­ter­son owns a mul­ti­mil­lion-dol­lar fam­ily busi­ness that moves mon­strous struc­tures: his goal is to be­come Amer­ica’s No.1 mover. Wife Tonya is the of­fice man­ager who holds the busi­ness to­gether, 12-year-old Greg is be­ing groomed to take over the fam­ily busi­ness and 8-year-old Ash­ley is a ‘‘fire cracker’’ who is a lit­tle re­luc­tant to be a part of the busi­ness. ‘‘Most kids like to play dur­ing sum­mer va­ca­tion,’’ Jeremy. says ‘‘Not ours, they would rather be on a job site.’’ On top of the daily pres­sures of mov­ing mon­strous build­ings, Jeremy has heart is­sues. As a dad and a hus­band he has to jug­gle fam­ily com­mit­ments with the re­spon­si­bil­i­ties of work.
