According to reports the old building was mounted onto a truck on the 21st of February and moved from 807 Franklin St. to 635 Fulton St, San Francisco.
A veteran house mover, Phil Joy, who governed and engineered the relocation, disclosed to the San Francisco Chronicle that it took several years to plan the execution.
“We had to get 15 different city agencies to agree to this,” Joy said.
San Francisco Chronicle reported that Tim Brown, a San Francisco broker who was the owner of the six-bedroom house, paid around $400,000 for moving charges.
