75-year-old Summerside Home moving to Darnley

     When I was in Summerside the other day I noticed this house was sitting up on moving beams ready for its move.   Here's a news story from the Journal-Pioneer website:

SUMMERSIDE – A 75-year-old Summerside home is taking to the road and will soon find a new spot in Darnley.

     Stewart Green and David Palmer purchased the building and are in the process of relocating it from its present address at 615 Water St. to the waterfront in Darnley.
     Green said the home is in excellent condition and the men purchased it with the intent to move it down east.
     Green said it would be difficult, if not impossible to build a home of this quality for the price they are paying to move it.
     “It’s just like an old country cottage,” he said.
     Palmer said they don’t plan to make many changes to the building other than adding a sliding glass door on the side facing the water and re-shingling the roof.
     Palmer said the gable-style building has approximately 1,200 square feet of space and hardwood floors throughout. On one side of the building are stained glass windows.
      Both men said they didn’t realize the work involved in moving a structure.
     The roof will have to be removed to give the building clearance for telephone and power lines on its trip to Darnley.
      The weather could pose a problem with the move because the roof will have to be removed and trucked to the new site on a flatbed vehicle.
     Palmer said they may have to wait until the weather clears and the threat of rain is lifted before the move can begin.

     I didn't have my camera with me, however, you are able to see the house on Google Streetview, I took a photograph of the house on the computer screen - its fuzzy but it gives you an impression of the house:
