I know I haven’t posted a moving update in a while, but we have been in a bit of a holding pattern! Here is a recap of what has happened since April:
Here is what the house looked like when we found it. We removed the 5 chimneys, 8 fireplaces, foundation, doors, hardware, HVAC, moldings, wainscoting, and anything else that was removable. We cleared the trees and brush from around the house.
This is what it looks like now. It is ready to move! The weather here in the upstate of South Carolina has not been cooperating with us. The house mover is bringing his equipment in as soon as the ground is dry enough, and we will clear the last of the trees from the front of the property, along with the gate. Then the house will be cut into 8 pieces, removed with a crane, loaded on a truck, and moved to its new home.
Here are are youngest two boys exploring the lot…now we need to get it measured, and figure out exactly where the house will be. Then we build the foundation. We are trying to save as many of the old oak, hickory, and black walnut trees as possible. A few more weeks, and the house will be there! I am so excited, I can’t believe it is actually happening…woo hoo!
