Sagaponack house move

Norwood, NJ

#1 Feb 12, 2010
A 90 ton sagaponack house has been picked up, and moved about 1/4 mile into a farm field, where it now sits, awaiting a group from The Peconic Land Trust to decide where they will have the large, early 19th century house placed. One favored spot that the Trust is looking at, will require the house to be hauled about 1/2 mile through a frozen potato field, down Hedges lane for about 1 mile and placed in a section of an unpalatable farm field. Being that the house sits roughly 40 feet in the air on top of the structural moving equipment, all utility wires along Hedges lane must be temporarily dropped.

This entire project began when the current owners of the house no longer wanted the building. Instead of demolishing the house, they seeked anybody who wanted the house to attempt to have it relocated. When the Peconic Land Trust found out about the deal, they jumped at the chance. The builder, Micheal Davis, had required the house to be off the property by early February. He got in touch with many house movers and offered to pay to have the house moved off of the property. He hired Dawn House Movers, A Yaphank company to load the house onto special, off-road tires and move the house into the large farm field behind the property. This was completed in about a week. Now the house is in the farm field, still sitting on tire supports, awaiting to be pulled to its new home.
