House Moving Day!

We moved the house on June 27th from the driveway, our construction site near the tools and shop, to its permanent home a short distance down the road. The house is basically completed. The moving in process will commense very soon. So excited.

The move went smoothly overall and we only had to deal with one small issue. Using the tractor made the move easy for our situation.

Backing the house down road to site.

It was a tight squeeze to get the house to the site but we made it.

Almost there!

Final maneuvering, before we begin leveling and blocking house in place.

House all level and blocked. Temporary porch in place. I plan to build a nice porch this summer once I’ve moved into the house.

My solar panels leaning on a support, temporarily. I’ll have four panels located in a better spot for uninterrupted sun. The panels on the frame in the background are my parents power supply as they’ve been off the grid for about 30 years.

Eventually, the blocking will be hidden so house looks more “finished”.

My beautiful location.

We spent the night in the house. There is a little finish work to be done and moving in will take some time. It has been 1 year and 1 month but I finally have a place of my own.
