For The Phoenix House’s journey across the country, the team has had to take her apart into the two sections and lower the roof – which is exactly how it was designed.
This process took a fair amount of time. Over the course of a week and a half, the house was raised to spray in insulation, several side panels were removed to allow the roof to lower properly, and a crane arrived on site to help us lift it so a trailer could roll underneath.
From there, the house had to move to it’s first staging area. This meant it had to move through a tunnel, while going downhill around a corner, and directly back uphill.
After all this was said and done, the house was staged, shrink wrapped, and loaded to be sent on it’s way to California.
The University of Louisville filmed The Phoenix House rolling out, and the video is included below.
The journey has only begun!
