Footage and pictures shared online showed how the house loaded onto giant dollies and pulled by a truck made its astonishing journey to its new location at a top speed of one mile per hour.

The house finally arrived at the new location at about an hour later. To unload the house, workers working for veteran house mover, Phil Joy, used jacks to lower it into place before removing the steel reinforcements so it could rest on the new foundation.
