One dollar. For a renowned architect's home. But there's a catch: It has to be moved!

That's where Nickel Brothers comes in.

Specializing in moving entire houses and other structures, the company has moved hundreds of homes since launching their business in 1956. Recently they were contacted by the owners of a mid-century modern waterfront home, designed by famed architect Paul Thiry.

Thiry had a hand in designing several of the buildings for the Seattle World's Fair in 1962, and he was appointed as its primary planner and architect. From his work at the time, he seemed fascinated with large edifices of concrete and steel, and this home was no exception.
