In San Francisco, a whole two-story house was moved to a new location: how it was
An amazing video shows a 139-year-old Victorian home in San Francisco moving to its new address. Writes about it Nbc news.
Englander House, a 139-year-old Victorian building in San Francisco, took several years and cost about $ 400 to move.
The 139-year-old house finally has a new address.
On Sunday, February 21st, Englander House, a historic building in the heart of the Golden City, was loaded onto a giant platform and moved from 807 Franklin Street to 635 Fulton St.
Videos and photographs show the beautiful emerald green house moving - at a speed of one mile per hour (1,6 km / h) - to its new location six blocks away. In some cases, construction workers were required to cut branches so that the house could drive through the city's densely forested streets.
Hundreds of spectators admire and photograph this gigantic relic of San Francisco's past.

Phil Joy, who directed the move, told the San Francisco Chronicle that it took several years to plan the quarter-mile (400 meters) trip.
“We had to get 15 different city agencies to agree to this,” Joy said.
Joy said the move was not easy because the house is 80 feet (24 meters) long. He added that part of the path is associated with the descent.
