What a sight it must be to spot an entire house being moved. We only kid about not having to pack: This is certainly not done in order to cut any corners…

It's sometimes done with historically significant homes that, for whatever reason, cannot remain on their previous plot of land and must be relocated. More often, prefab homes are spotted being trucked to their sites. The most notable house-moving in recent history: the Robert Venturi-designed Lieb House.

Have you ever witnessed a house being moved?
