I got some more photos today of the men working on the Kiggins house to get it into place. They have moved it off the slight hill and into the recesses. I will keep adding them here until I can get the whole story transferred to a new blog that I have decided to devote just to it to show progress on the re-model. Until I get to it, the updates will be here, such as todays:
As I approached the Kiggins House from the park side, this was the view that met my eyes.
A close up of the lumber that is holding the house in the air until it can be set on a foundation.
The photo is a little crooked but I was trying to catch the photo of the worker under the house to show that it is still up on the wooden blocks quite high.
A view a little further back to show the house had been lowered into the "hole" (lower level ground).
A little further back to show the relationship to the house next door --both are owned by the same family now. The house on the left was also remodeled by them and they live in it presently. They have it on the market to sell now and will live in the Kiggins House when it is finished being restored.
The two houses side by side view.
Going around the house on 24th St which is parallel to the park, you can see the placement of the Kiggins home behind the present house lived in by the buyers of the Kiggins House.
THERE IS MORE about this house move in the post from yesterday below.
