"In a historic neighborhood of homes built in the 1800s, Roy Hill's new house went up in a single day after trucks hauled it to Savannah in pieces built inside a North Carolina factory.From Beth Reiter, the city's historic preservation officer:
Two trucks carried the downstairs level, split into halves, of the home's 2,200 square feet. A couple more brought the upstairs, also in two parts. A fifth truck carried the attic window dormers and parts of the roof..."
"'It doesn't matter what the construction technique is,' Reiter said. 'It's what the product looks like in the end.'"
