Katie Denne and her children look at their new home

Mobile home

Katie Denne and her children look at their new home, which has come to Campbell River all the way from Oak Bay. This 103-year-old five-bedroom home (on the right), which began its journey up-Island on Feb. 20, was expected to arrive on the Dennes’ Ida Road farm this morning by 5 a.m. Nickel Bros. House Moving Ltd. is moving the house, and Denne says they have to close the highway and Park Road and move the house in the middle of the night so they can get the home onto the farm property. The house is 50 feet wide, and the telephone poles on Park Road are about 51 feet apart, so the truck driver would have zigzagged up the road. As well, they have had to drop all the power lines and drive over them because the house is so tall. See Friday’s paper for more about the house and the move.
