The home is sited on a flat expanse of farmland. When the current owner, Jonathan Andersson, first purchased the property, he hired a team of carpenters, plumbers, and electricians, and spent 14 months renovating. He and his team excavated around two feet of ground under the home and laid down drainage materials, cellular plastic, reinforcement, and a floor-heating hose before filling the areas with concrete.
