House lifted and moved to new location in US (photos/video)

A 139-year-old Victorian house in San Francisco was lifted from its old address and moved to a new address.

Phil Joy, a veteran house mover who oversaw the move, told the San Francisco Chronicle that moving the house, built in 1882, took several years to plan.

“We had to get 15 different city agencies to agree to this,” Joy said, according to the newspaper.

Tim Brown, a San Francisco broker who was the owner of the six-bedroom house, paid about $400,000 in moving costs and fees, the Chronicle reported.
