Nickel Bros Moving Co has been keeping busy around Kirkland lately. Last Friday, not long after the Trueblood house from 7th Ave got moved to its permanent location, my neighbor's house got picked up and barged away to its new home in Canada. This was no small project as neighbors, spectators, drones and news crews hovered around watching in amazement as workers scurried around underneath the house carefully calibrating, and slowly inching forward, all while seemingly un-phased by the small sways and creaks in the process. Everyone wins - the homeowner who doesn't have to pay for demolition, the buyer who got a screaming deal on a large home, and of course, Mother Nature who was saved from more waste. The Kirkland Reporter has the details here.
