Second-hand houses find new life on lake lots, acreages
'50 years from now this is still going to be a solid solid house'
Demolition is not the only option when it comes to building a new home on an old lot in a city neighbourhood.
Many of the original homes can be lifted from their foundations and loaded on to a trailer to find new life elsewhere.
"Three-bedroom bungalows like this are a hot commodity," says Tim Wilcox, owner of Nomad Building Movers.
The CBC's Rick Bremness spent one night with Wilcox, as his crew squeezed the home down a city street at 1 a.m.
