House ahead by maggiemae

House ahead

I rushed outside and managed one shot of this going slowly up the road! I wonder where it is going!
Thankful for:
Google Translate; so I can understand what my Japanese daughter in law is saying when she writes in Japanese.
It seems to be -"Have house - will travel " !

Not very often you see a house going down the road...lol
I guess they put the roof back on upon arrival?

How exciting!

This was one of the most exciting things I did in NZ all those years ago. I had never seen anyone move a whole house before and we loved following it down the road, drainpipe lightly swinging, curtains still at the windows!

Wow! In broad daylight too. They normally move them at night here because they have to take down low power lines for them to pass.

Makes me think of a children's book by Virginia Lee Burton.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Little_House
Author Virginia Lee Burton has stated that &quot: "The Little House was based on our own little house which we moved from the street into a field of daisies with apple trees growing around."
More interesting info in the link.

Oh my word! What an interesting occurrence! I’m glad you got the photo. My favorite part? The sign on the car that says house ahead!

wow! A house moving down the road, spectacular to witness this
July 22nd, 2021  
this is rather spectacular! We see all kinds of sights on the roads here, but nothing to top this.

Moving home means something completly different in the UK.

It’s nice to see a homestead being relocated rather than demolished.

Isn’t this an amazing sight! I have never heard before about moving houses lock stock & barrel to a new place…only in NZ! I always had to look twice & used to be amazed when people sold their home & it was relocated somewhere entirely different.

@grammyn As if one couldn't see it was a house, Katy! Mine favourite part too!

@leggzy I guess it was just too high to go under the power lines!

@gijsje I've just purchased that book for grandchildren, thanks Bet!

@casablanca Just imagine if there was a bed in there that you could go to sleep during that journey!
