Watch the Rees House's Epic Two Day Move in Just Two Minutes

Last week's Rees House move was one for the ages, but the large home and its gigantic dolly required a slow crawl that took two days to make it to its new location. However, this time lapse video footage shows the massive tank-like trailer and historic residence rolling down the block in just a couple of minutes. At this speed, the relocation of the 762 ton home, making way for the new McCormick Place entertainment district, is even more impressive. That parking job that would make any driver's ed teacher proud.
