Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

With over 30 years of homebuilding experience, Kimberley Homes has helped our clients with all sorts of unique projects and requests. Recently, our Build Where You Want Specialist Amanda helped her infill client in St. Albert find a solution for their lot that involved moving an entire house!

As the infill market continues to expand throughout the city of Edmonton and beyond finding the right size homesite, in the right community, with the amenities you’re looking for and with a home ready to be torn down, can be challenging. In this case, our clients found a wonderful property in a mature neighborhood in St. Albert but were disheartened at that thought of tearing down a home in such great condition. Instead of eliminating this specific lot as an option, Amanda suggested selling the existing home and moving it off their property.

The benefits to our clients with this type of house move include:

  • Cash from the sale of the existing home
  • Savings on the demolition and disposal of materials
  • Pride in recycling a great home

The buyers of the existing home pay for the move from our clients’ property to their own and it is all coordinated by a professional house moving company. The house was split into 2, lifted from the original foundation, hoisted onto the trucks and delivered to it’s new family. Typically these types of house moves will be bought for acreages, lake properties or cabins.

We’re now ready to prep our clients’ St. Albert property for construction of their new Kimberley infill!
