Chatham-Kent/Lambton County – 2011
This move shows an ideal way to move a brick home. The brick should be removed not only to get a better seal to the foundation to prevent leaking, but to reduce cost of moving the structure. Price is primarily based on how it is loaded and secondarily the distance and potential obstacles. The more steel needed to support the house, the greater the costs incurred. Similarly, the greater the distance or quantity of obstacles, the greater the cost. Obstacles generally are overhead wires, bridges (over head and open top bridges with railings only), railway tracks, mailboxes, road signs, large trees, raised flower gardens on the edge of town properties, and other variables affecting the ability to fit a particular house down a roadway.
