The Twilight Saga "Swan" Set House is OFFICIALLY no more

*upsetting twi-images ahead!!*

You can also check out a short video of the site on youtube.

The deconstruction began early Monday morning ( See previous post) as The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn's production use of the Swan House set in Vancouver, British Columbia was completed - meaning the site would be once again disassembled - this time, for good. *sobs*

The Swan House location isn't the only to set to have been recently deconstructed. Bella and Edward's Cottage set has also been taken down.

As a reminder, the Swan House set used for Breaking Dawn, was the same one made for The Twilight Saga: New Moon and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, but it is not the original Swan House set used in Twilight. 
The latter remains in St. Helens, Oregon, and the former was constructed similar to the first one (with a few changes - namely, Bella's window space) so that production could be moved to Vancouver rather than the Portland area.
It is speculated that the set's use for Breaking Dawn was very minimal - only a couple of scenes required exterior frames of the house.

The rest of production, it seems, will be carried out in Squamish (outside of Vancouver), with several of the new coven castmembers involved. Imaginably, they are filming an outdoor sequence using Squamish's lovely scenery as a backdrop for the shoot. Several fans have ventured to the area to catch a glimpse of what's going on there, and you can check out those accounts here and here.

It is a sad day for Twilight Fans and the finality of the end of the saga is clear with the destruction of this set house.

However, in the words of Director Chris Weitz, "Life is short and Art is Long" and this house will live on for a long time in the Twilight Saga Movies.
