We knew the section was being cleared and the house made ready for removal. Updates of its progress were provided fairly regularly by family members who passed by and took note of the happenings. Finally, late one night we were notified that the day of the house's departure had arrived! In no great style we arrived at the location, camera in hand, to witness the occasion and learn more about this kind of work, what actually happens, how it all works.
|: : The main part of the house was taken away on one truck (as shown) : :|
And a smaller piece had been cut off and was transported separately on another truck (side)
It was interesting to see it moved--the trucks pulled away rather slowly, with workmen running back and forth checking that the house was okay and wasn't going to hit anything. It was the entire width of the road, so the house had to be raised to pass over the top of cars parked along the side.
