Moving house often marks a major transition in our lives.
In New Zealand (and perhaps other countries that build homes out of wood) moving house can literally mean — moving a house. It’s not uncommon to see scenes like the one above. Specialist companies come along and load a house (sometimes having to cut it into pieces first) onto big trucks for relocation. Often it goes straight to the new owners’ site to be re-piled, wired, plumbed, etc. Other times there’s a transition period where it sits with others on a used house lot, waiting for a potential buyer.
