after the move . . .

This house was moved about 20 feet, to the front edge of the property at its original location .
I'm not sure what that accomplished ? See the former location of the house here. I will keep following the restoration process.

Interesting process. Maybe they want more room in the back yard?

Architecture is the fine art of potties and parking. Might have needed a new foundation and picked up a parking spot in the process ; ]

I'm always surprised that people 'move' houses. And - I love the timeless processing here.

Beautiful processing. That was an enormous amount of work (and probably money) to move it 20 feet. I like the scalloped decoration on the front.

A bigger back garden maybe?! :) I'm curious how this is going to end, it needs a lot of work I guess. Great post processing, it looks haunted ;)
