Ol' Klines!

Ram House Movers continues to prepare the old Kline’s Café for its move to its new location at the corner of St. Mary’s and South Magnolia streets in downtown Rockport. The company completed its first lift (about six inches) Thursday, Jan. 7. Ram’s John Wilkinson said the building needs to be lifted about eight feet above grade. “We have no estimated time for the actual move,” he said. “We are just being very careful.” Getting all the equipment in place is what has taken a lot of time, he said. “Going up and down is easier. Each lift (inches at a time) goes pretty quick, but it takes close to an hour between lifts to reset and adjust the equipment.”
