A farmer in China just moved his 3-storey building 40 meters away from a road construction site to avoid demolition. He built the house with 1 million yuan (N60 million), and was compensated with 680,000 yuan to build another one by the govt.
Instead of building another one, the farmer hired a professional construction team to detach the building from its foundations; then pay another company, Yancheng, to gently move it 40 meters away from the site to a new place onto a new foundation.
He spent a total of 330,000 yuan in the movement, and still have a change of 350,000 yuan from his compensation.
