While most of the neighborhood was sleeping overnight, a house made its way through Ballard — very slowly — on the back of a moving truck.
The 730-square foot bungalow was loaded up at 843 NW 62nd St. — a lot that’s the future home of two single family dwellings. Instead of demolishing the house, developer NW Built teamed up with Nickel Bros. to sell it and move it to the San Juan Islands. It sold for $72,500.
Once on the truck, the house made its way to 8th Ave. and down to Market St.
And from Market over to 52nd and then 14th Ave.
And then loaded up on a barge at the boat ramp at the end of 14th. You’ll notice a second, larger house on the barge — that’s a beach house that was moved from Alki in West Seattle a week ago. While the Ballard house is headed to Lopez Island, the Alki house is bound for BC.
