A historic Portsmouth carriage house is about to get a second chance at life.

The dilapidated building at 27 Austin St. will be moved to South Berwick, Maine. In its place, an addition will be built onto an existing home also located on that Portsmouth property.

"I'll be taking the carriage house apart piece by piece," said Alan Breed, the South Berwick resident who will be its new owner. "It should be a lot of fun."

He said he plans to start this morning.
