EMHE Beaufort Day 8: This is it, house is done (update: More coverage/video/photos)

The bus has arrived. It'll soon be time to MOVE IT!

Updated January 19: So they moved that bus, now what?

Well first here's some coverage of yesterday's big excitement. The Island Packet has a very brief writeup along with a photo of the new house, but you've seen that already.

WSAV also was there with video coverage, you can view that right below.

We also understand that the Dicksinson family will be holding a 5 p.m. press conference today, no doubt to thank the community for all of its support over the past week.

Still no word on when this episode will air, but from the turnaround we've seen in Savannah and Florida we're expecting late February or early March.

Finally, the EMHE Beaufort County Facebook page has some great photos from the big reveal and the family's reaction. You can check those out, Facebook member or not, here.

Updated 4 p.m. January 18: There's a video already on YouTube from this afternoon's big MOVE THAT BUS moment.

It's a bit grainy, but you can check it out at the very bottom of the post.

Updated 3:30 p.m. January 18: The family is home and Staff Sgt. Bill Dickinson is watching the whole thing via satellite. That's all according to Ty Pennignton's Facebook page.

We'll shoot some photos up here as soon as we get some.

Updated 2:30 p.m. January 18: The bus is in front of the home. Yes, that photo up there is of the bus and of the new home in Beaufort.

We're hearing reports that the family will arrive some time between 3 and 6 p.m.

We'll keep you posted.

Reported January 18: The big "move that bus" moment is expected to happen between 1 and 3 p.m. today, and the bus was spotted Monday on Carteret Street in Beaufort while filming a scene going across the Woods Bridge. 

And crews were hurriedly working to wrap things up, coming off of a cold snap and now having dealt with a rainy snap.  Still, the landscaping has gone in and the finishing touches on the interior are being put in place.

If you'd like to be on scene for the moment, be sure to arrive early and park at the Piggly Wiggly on Ribaut Road.

For a full rundown of the latest photos check out the project's official Facebook page here, and WTOC has a nice video of yesterday morning's efforts.

WSAV was also there on Monday and has a video update along with the planting of the United States and Marine Corps flag in the yard, check out the video just below.
