San Francisco Just Uprooted A Victorian House And Moved It To A New Site In One Piece

It took six hours and $400,000 to move the historic building six blocks.

The house was placed onto a truck with a remotely-operated hydraulic dolly.

For early risers in San Francisco, the morning of February 21 was a little different than usual, as many noticed a complete house floating by through the city streets. But this was no dream or hallucination — a team of workers actually managed to uproot and transport a 139-year-old home in one piece to a new location nearby.

According to BuzzFeed News, the Herculean effort to move the historic home required more than a year of planning. Street lights and power lines had to be removed and parking meters were torn out in order for the Victorian home known as the Englander House to reach its final destination.
