    Moving House part 2

    The second attempt at moving the first house succeeded.
    A larger crane has been brought in from Belgium, and did the lifting job.

    The trip has just started:


    Passing by the sports field where I first thought would be the storage place:


    Some narrow spots en route, and tree branches had to be cut:


    A 90 degree turn into the storage place:


    The backside of the building:


    Foundations for it's temporary home:


    The final turn:


    The new home for the next couple oy years:


    The whole move lasted about one hour, including stops for adjustments.

          What is the pink building next to where it has been placed?

          Comment


            Thank you for the nice comments.

            The pink building is part of one of two former canning factories.
            Now refurbished and made into a nursing home and small flats for students.

            Fifty years ago, the smell of sardines was very noticeable in this area.

                    Had some business to do near Ilsvikøra today.
                    Stopped to take this snapshot.



                    I generally like symmetry, but here hardly one line is level.
                    And I don't even own a fish-eye lens.

                    I like the colours they use on the grain elevators -
                    wish they could even do more of it.

                    How nice this photoview could have been if some proper artists had decorated the yellow wall.

                      Last night, the largest chestnut tree in front of Stiftsgården (the Kings residence), shed one of its branches.
                      Squeeking and other sounds warned passers by to flee.
                      The cold winter and ice penetration into hollows named the cause.



                      Today, after checking the condition of the rest of it, more branches, if not all are being cut down.
                      Sad, but then more of the beautiful building will be easier to view.



                      And the trees further up the street has been declared healthy.




                      According to adressa.no, the wood will be brought to Tunga county jail.
                      The inmates will cut it into fireplace-size, and the Salvation Army will distribute it to people in need, or it will be sold to their benefit.

                        That is an awesome gesture.
