Anna Maria, Florida - People usually come to Anna Maria Island for the beautiful beaches and water, but today the big tourist attraction was something a bit different.
"It's such a large house, we didn't realize they could do something like that," said Carol Butler, vacationing on the island from Spring Hill.
But this is not just any house. It's nearly 100 years old and it's on the move.
"So far, so good. Pretty exciting," says Marcel Aucoin, a tourist from Canada. "I'm a retired engineer, so it's pretty interesting stuff for me."
On Friday, the house was raised up and supports placed on wheels. The next challenge was moving the 300,000 pound structure across a canal. On Monday morning, crews built a bridge, but after that it was excruciatingly slow going. With trucks pulling the house and bulldozers pushing it, progress was measured in inches.
