The House Move Has Officially Begun

The movers have started work on our house! Ken and the crew of Egge Movers brought lots of beams, including two enormous I-beams, and dropped them in the yard. Then they broke four holes in the foundation, tunneled into the crawl space, and lined the I-beams up with the holes.

Using a roller and bobcat, they pushed the I-beams through holes, into the basement...

and out the other side. We are now waiting for the excavator to come to our property to dig the basement, to be followed by the cement man pouring the walls. To be followed by our house moving down the road!
