House moving


We all have horror stories from moving, but what if you are not just moving your stuff but also the entire house? A couple in Grosse Ile are doing just that – they are moving their historic Ballard/Stryker house, which happens to be the third oldest in Wayne County. The move will be featured on HGTV’s House Movers.

Today was supposed to be the moving day but yesterday’s rain has delayed it. You can follow their progress (and catch up on some of the drama) at their website.

    Wow, that’s cool. Thanks for mentioning it on the site. I’ll definitely be following the progress.

    For those of you who love urban living we have a wonderful 1904 Swiss Cottage style home for sale in Historic West Village. It’s completely refurbed with new gormet kitchen, roof, gutters, hardword floors, exterior paint – the works – so we will be very sad to see it go. Anyway, its on a charming quiet city street and is well priced. Blocks from the water and Belle Isle, and minutes from Downtown. Give us shout if your’re interested. It’s at 7843 Van Dyke Place.
