Wow those are brighter than I thought. I'll have to stay out there until it's good and dark instead of dusk.

Wow, that brick is rough. Building is beautiful but it looks like I put the brick on.

I do love it when 45*s are done that way. SO much better than the stupid joint all the way up the middle

35' tall of brick put up in 1883ish then being moved 8 miles down the road setting a world record. I would say the bricks are in pretty dang good shape.

The far left side of the house is pictured above.




There will be ground lights shining up so it looks less scooby doo.

According to Cole those aren't 45 corners, but I completely agree. Problem is you need solid brick to make it work.

Sweet. Didn't know it had been moved. Must have been fun, well fun maybe isn't the right word, but I doubt that had anything to do with the brick being rough. Victorian brick was often very rough in my experience.

What made the world record? I thought that lighthouse was moved quite a ways

It's the longest move by any brick structure. The previous record was 2.5miles.

I have to say it is an awesome project.

There is a you tube clip about the move that I remember watching, it focused on the moving guy and his crew. Probably in the thread that tgeb provided.

I think Cole has a whole documentary that was on the discovery channnel or something. Probably hoarding it in his VCR collection of Baywatch...
