Large Flood Buyout Home Moved from South Fargo

Posted: Updated:

You might of seen the giant sized house on South 25th Street in Fargo Friday morning. It finally got on the move after being postponed several times due to weather and other issues. Those watching the house make it's way down 25th street will tell you it's not a sight you see every day.

"It's crazy seeing how fast they can get that thing moving," said Andy Desharnais.  

The huge, two story, three car garage, 230,000 pound house made its way through Fargo streets around 9:00 a.m. and Desharnais says he's surprised this monstrosity is able to make the move.  

"I've seen it done once before just not in the middle of Fargo, I didn't think they were gonna be able to make it out of the middle of Fargo with all the traffic lights and everything," Said Desharnais.  

That's because traffic lights in the moving path had to be swung aside and give way to the house. It was such a sight, Carter Sandeik took a break from his daily routine to catch a glimpse.

"It's like being a kid, ya see something like that and you're a kid, you want to sit there on your bike and watch it," said Sandeik.  

The house did not exceed speeds of 5 miles per hour as it made it toward its new home south of Moorhead.  All Fargo streets involved in the move are now re-open to traffic.
