Abracadabra! well, not quite...

For the last several weeks, I've been wishing I could wave a magic wand or wiggle my nose or cast a spell that would begin 'The Move'... and yet all things happen in their own good time. Ah, yes. The Snuff and his band of merry men have been here for several days and have made great progress as you can see. They carried in a rather monstrous pneumatic -new word for me meaning air pressure :)- jack and raised each corner a bit at a time. It soon became clear to all that the addition on the far side of the cottage would have to be separated to facilitate the move and that they did ~ just sliced it off! Now, I'm telling you, this group of men had patience beyond measure (it took TWO full days!) as they inched the main building around by 90 degrees and tucked it in beside our garage (where we are presently residing!). These photos show the before, during and after ~

The flatbed trailer is arriving to today to carry it all up the road to its new home.

Looks like there's room for a new cottage! Stay tuned!
