In the middle of a public crowd in San Francisco, California, USA, a large team of engineers and construction workers succeeded in bringing an old 139-year-old house six streets down.


City residents congregated to watch the Victorian house rise from its base, loading it onto a flatbed truck, driving it off Franklin Street and crossing the streets of the tree-lined city.


For the 465-square-meter house to move, workers often had to cut branches of trees in the streets.


The house requires enormous repairs and is situated on a separate plot of property, so, according to local media, its owner sold it to a real estate developer planning to build apartments in his place.


The cost of moving the six-room house to a distance of 6 streets was approximately $ 400,000, according to records.

 

Besides, that the process of moving the house for years was in the planning stages.
