One woman’s effort to recycle a house

Posted by Geeky Swedes on July 30th, 2008

Now that the city owns the plot of land formerly owned by Love Israel on 9th Ave. — now Ballard’s newest park — Margaret Todd wants to save the house on the property. But saving it isn’t cheap. Moving costs are estimated at $45,000, and that doesn’t count a new foundation. “The house can only really be moved 10 blocks to a mile,” Todd told the Ballard News Tribune. “After that the cost to have the house moved would not be worth it.” So Todd is looking for an affordable plot of land nearby, which as Ballard residents know, is a tall order even in today’s softening economy.
