It Takes a Lot To Move a House!

In a recent post I told you about the beach cottage we bought for a dollar.  The catch was that it had to be moved to another lot.

So we enlisted Henry's niece, Theresa Purvis, a realtor with Solomon Properties, to help us find property situated close enough to make it possible to move the house with minimal expense.  She helped us buy this pretty one just down the street next to the city park and close to the beach...
Nice and shady with lots of trees--next to the park!
We began the process of hiring people to work on the project--an architect, engineer to handle the drainage plan, construction manager, house much for the house costing a dollar!  In order for the house to fit on the lot we had to move some palm trees.  Most of them stayed on our lot--three were shared with The Coral Cottage.

Once the lot was prepared and the drainage plan approved we obtained a permit to move the house.  I'll show you how that worked next time!
