Moving of Ristola House, Porvoo / 2012

A 160-year-old log house was moved 13 kilometres from its perivious location in Porvoo town center. Spatial challenges had to be taken into consideration due to the lack of space around the lifting site.

The house was shifted from its foundations in one piece and was transferred with special transportation to its new location. The lift was a tandem lift, accomplished with two cranes.

Careful planning insured a successful lift.
