Final resting place for the old tenant house. At this point, footings will be dug, filled with concrete, and then concrete blocks will be laid on the footings to bring the house about three feet (approx. 1 meter) off the ground (above grade)....and level, of course!
This is a pseudo-HDR photo in which fine detail is lost to improved contrast (both the highlights and shadows were accentuated)

Thank you Peter. Not as colorful as fractals, but some people have never seen a house being moved.

Nancy.... I think you would change your mind if you saw inside this old house. It needs a lot of fixin' up, which it will get over the next few months.

Actually Glaydy8er, I think a house this size could be built for one half the money it cost to move it. Some people have more dollars than sense!!!!!!! I would have not made the same choice.

It's been a long time since I've heard that Minz...probably 50 years.

I know it's been done over and over but it's so fascinating how they can move a whole house.
