Day ONE of the house setup:

DAY ONE of the house setup:
Yes it was Sunday, but the setup crew came early this morning!
First, one house section was moved into place along the north side of the foundation.
The house was then jacked and blocked up until the frame was at the right height to roll over the foundation sill.

Here is a closer look at one of the winches used to pull the house sections into their place over the foundation walls. There were two winches.

It was 'manual labor' that moved the house over the width of foundation!
Here, the south section is halfway into it's final position.

These guys earned their pay today!

After the first section was temporarily set down on the sill,
John used his tractor to pull the second section alongside the foundation.

TODAY, Section One was moved onto the foundation!
