VANCOUVER, March 17, 2014 /CNW/ - This morning, Nickel Bros. House Moving Ltd. will commence moving of the "Dorothies", two mirror image heritage homes in Kerrisdale, in cooperation with Trasolini Chetner Construction and Development and the Vancouver Heritage Foundation. The homes will move from their current address at 2827 and 2837 West 43rd Avenue to their new location just a few blocks away at 2820 West 41st Ave.
The Tudor style homes were originally built in 1931 and named after the wives of their original owners, both named Dorothy. The unique homes, originally scheduled for demolition, were saved through the HRA (Heritage Revitalization Agreement) with the support of the City of Vancouver and will be relocated by truck using special house lifting methods. The mobile homes have B status on the Vancouver Heritage Register, meaning they have historical or cultural significance but are not protected from demolition. The homes will be fully restored with their basements converted to garden suites.
