Basement no more

The Delaney House on cribbing, ready to move

At the end of the day, Tom and I went by the Delaney House, to discover that progress had been made. The basement is gone - the walls have been taken down, and the house is sitting on cribbing.

Tom and I spent 2 hours cleaning up the site and putting up some chain link fencing where the wall of the basement used to be.

The house is ready to move - either tomorrow or Friday, Phil will be back to lower the house and begin to move it back. By Friday evening, the house should be in its new location. More pictures to come.


  1. Hooray! As I drove out my driveway this morning I noticed there were no walls. I looked as if the house were floating in mid-air! Congrats you guys!

  2. Wow! At long last. Congratulations!

    This is perfect for my class this Sunday, on "Building Beneath". I just hope for enough students. It's only $45 (3hrs), & a chance to meet an architect and engineer who do this sort of thing!

  3. WOW! that was fast. Looking good guys!

  4. You guys are so amazing! Just reading the list of chores and everything that has to be thought through makes me need to lie down. Congrats on the progress.
