The concrete pumping truck was parked at a building site up the road from the house where it was raised by its crane before falling on its side across the road.
Pictures show the extended crane tearing through the roof and walls of the building.
Workers were seen leveling and finishing the newly poured concrete foundation slab on the road before it dried as police, firefighters and paramedics inspected the damage.
