Slight change of plans

Yes, we’re still moving the house! But the method and schedule have changed slightly.

As of yesterday, the house was jacked up off the current foundation (stunning photos to come later today).

Later today or tomorrow (more likely, tomorrow, Thursday the 14th), the guys will roll the house down the hill to the new foundation by putting it on wheels and towing it with a giant excavator.

(Note from Michael: The hill from the old location to the new foundation is, at this point, nearly flat, so the rolling will only be “downhill” in the broadest sense.)

First thing Friday morning, the crane will pick up the house and set it down on the new foundation.

So, a two-day process and only one crane lift. They guys said they’ve seen this whole thing done once on TV, so not to worry… 🙂
