Santa Fe 8 House Move!

May 30, 2018

A new Alachua Habitat for Humanity home constructed indoors at Santa Fe College’s Charles R. Perry Construction Institute is set to roll to its final destination on Wednesday, May 30. The home, built by apprentices and students at Santa Fe College’s construction institute, is built in two sections. Each section is transported separately and when the house is ready to move, each section is jacked up and loaded by crane on to a trailer and then slowly transported to the home site. At the home site, a crane then lifts each of the sections off the semi- trailer and sets them into place on the home’s foundation, which is installed prior to the arrival of the house structure. After the house is set, a front porch, back porch, driveway, landscaping, and other finishing touches will be added by Habitat construction volunteers.
