This is for Thursday doors. A door on a barge….

I went to the Pourhouse last night. A four apartment building was arriving by barge from Vancouver. It was unloaded into the parking lot with two cranes and various trucks. Today they will be dropping power lines as they convey it through town.


The beer garden was very popular…. unique entertainment.




Everyone cheered when it was across and on land!


Ready for the trip through town, dropping power lines, today.

    I think that’s the first time I see a house relocated using a barge. The whole project must take a very serious amount of planning.
    Thanks for joining us this week :-)

    Every once in a while, an old house gets moved in our community. There’s a moving firm in a town nearby that has quite a reputation for jacking up homes. loading them on wheels and carefully moving them from one spot to another. Fun to watch and photograph.

      The barge was just so interesting… and I knew it was arriving in town, but not where.

    I’m often guilty of missing the point, but… Wouldn’t it have been easier (and perhaps even less expensive) to just build a four apartment building? Obviously, the answer must be no, but it still is a quirky event to behold!
