The Safe is Gone!

It took nearly 4 hours of work and 2 months of preparation (aka persistently pestering the previous owner/seller) but the 1319 gun safe is finally out of the Mulberry House.


We’ve made a little more progress on the Mulberry House renovation, but by far the biggest step was getting the 1319 pound safe moved.

Removing the Door

First they removed the door.

Then they tried using a hand truck but then decided that wasn’t going to work.

So they used the dolly along with lots of lifting to get it over the door thresholds and down steps.

Lifting the safe through the first door

They put blankets on the floors that seem to have protected them from any new damage.

And they moved the safe out of the house.

And the house still stands.

So I guess paint is really the only thing left holding it together.
