It is a very difficult task when you have to move from your old house to your new one. The planning, packing, moving, unpacking rearranging, and of course fighting over the lost stuff in the process. It is a classic struggle that will be the same in every sort of household.
When you go through such an energy-draining process, you might that you could just move the entire house as it is to the new place. Guess, what even if this doesn’t happen much, people actually do move their entire houses! You will not believe this but a Victorian-styled house in San Francisco was moved 7 blocks to reach its new location! San Fransisco is not a place with a lot of space, but amazingly this house was moved on the main streets successfully. So, we thought of sharing this amazing story with you. Scroll down to read more and to check out the photos of this awesome project.
This amazing Victorian house is named “Englander House” and it is about 5,170-square-foot roughly in its size. San Fransisco has a lot of Victorian-style based houses which can be really valuable. So, this house was placed on a trailer to move it 7 blocks to its destination.
This house is almost 140 years old and it took around 400,000 dollars to get the moving done. Even though it was done early in the morning, it took a lot of effort and around 15 different types of permits for this operation. Many parking meters, street lights, and other public structures had to be removed to move this house. This house was bought at 2.6 million dollars in 2013 and the owner doesn’t want it demolished.
This became a spectacle for everyone in San Fransisco and it definitely made the news! Check out the news segment below.
