Fascinating! Do they move this house?
Incredible! How can they do this?
I really can't understand how moving a whole house works. It just doesn't seem possible.
What a wonderful shot Jack!
Amazing. When I lived in Hawaii we would see houses being moved because much of the land there was owned by large companies that would only lease it on log term ground leases. When the leases would expire, if the people could not afford to to renew the leases, they would have to move the house.But we never saw a house as large as this being moved.
Can't you see the wife standing there in the yard saying, " Honey, move it a little to the left. No, that 's too far. Well now if you turn it just a little so it faces the trees. Well, maybe not. How about angling it so ......"V
The concept of moving a whole house reasonably intact boggles my mind.
Virginia made me smile..:o)Possible only if the house is light, made of wood, with no foundations! impossible in France (and I'm not even talking about the administrative problems when the whole house is changing of address!..)
Lock, stock and barrel eh Jack, what a great shot! Wonder where this house will end up?
Hee! I wish we could have done this with our house in Jackson...
Oh, yes, Virginia's comment broke me up and I can imagine the very same thing!! What a great shot and a fun post for the day! Hope your week is going well, Jack! And I hope things are drying out!!Sylvia
Hi Jack, how is this possible? I've never seen such a scene! Great!
It is always so much fun to watch this being done!
They must really LOVE that house to want to go to all that trouble.
Oh lol, try to do this over here...
Impressive house - so glad they are saving it. Hope Irene spared you!
Perhaps they had an overgrown garden like yesterday's house and got fed-up with it!
I was thinking about these kind of house moves the other day. I wonder if they just rest the house down, cement it down?!
I always wonder how the house faired in the long run. Did the framing hold up, will repairs have to be made (I'm sure). I have never seen it after the fact only in the process of the move like in your photo.
He he he! Amuzing shot! Makes me think of snails!
That is a huge house to move! I have seen this done with smaller ones-but never one that size. Wow. You have me laughing, Virginia, I know a lady who would say just those things.
Must really love their home! Looks like a keeper to me.
Great capture and I am glad that you were not too close! It looks like it might tip at any moment!Bises,Genie
Oh my Jack! you would think it would collapse and tumble like a big lego house. well captured!
Is this a federal era building?
Ha ha. Not something you see every day.
Ha -- good one, Jack! Talk about a society on the go...
