House Rescue: Examining the Carbon Accounting Benefits of Moving a House

Have you ever seen a historic Craftsman or Victorian home being moved along a city street, or being towed on a barge from one location to another? House moving is often featured on the news as a unique spectacle when done today. However, historically speaking, house moving has been surprisingly common for as long as humans have been building homes; especially with historic houses, lighthouses, and other buildings or structures in the pathway of 'progress' or development in urban environments. You will learn how many of these homes don't have to be destroyed, but can be moved instead.
