After about three months in the air, the day arrived to lower the house onto its new foundation. All went well, but not as planned. After decades of sitting as much as 8" out of level, the "belly" of the house touched down on a temporary wall before the back corner, causing the studs in the wall to bow from vertical by a few inches. The crew caught it before the wall snapped, raised the house, and our contractor reinforced the suspect wall with whatever they had on-hand. In fact, you'll see an emergency lumber delivery arrive between the first and second attempts. This time lapse sequence was shot over the course of about 9 hours, shot from a telephone pole across the street. Things to look for: me pulling back the drapes on various windows, pizza delivery, beam removal, and rain. Frame rates vary between 10 and 40 frames per second, the average being 30, and I took the liberty of slowing down the actual movement of the house, and speeding up some of the parts in between.
