Do you mean the title literally? That they are going to move the house? Surely not

@CElliottUK: Well, you are right...went by later and, though the house was still jacked up, the equipment and debris were gone...I believe remodeling is now underway. :-)

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

I was prompted to ask Chris' question looking at this . . you have sure built up enough b&w tension in your presentation to make the answer a possible 'yes' !

This is truly amazing ! And so different from here. I cannot even imagine moving houses here.
But how convenient it must be. :-)

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Superb high contrast notes in the picture, yet I thought it looked more like a demolition rather than remodelling.

Phil David Morris 2011 from Saskatoon,, Canada

We used to have a large barn we moved from 25 kilometers away, this looks like a piece of
cake in comparison, looks to be a house that is worth saving and restoring. Beautiful photo.

Mhelene from Paris, France

A very beautiful light in this superb photo . The ouse looks like fragile and askew !

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

This view through the fence gives one the impression that the house is imprisoned! A beautifully framed and composed shot Dulcie! Well done! ;-)

Tracy from La Selva Beach, United States

Oh, it always makes me sad to see these old homes go....So many families lived their lives there, made memories there.....

Gérard Beullac from Paris, France

We had here in France this image that in the States it's possible to move our house .
I remember very well to have seen such a picture of big trucks dragging a house on a trailer, that was in the glorious 70's, something like that.
I don't feel that's the case here.

Looks like an imprisoned house. I've always wanted to see a house being moved.
