Delivery and Set-Up of our Modular Home

Amazing Building Mover at Work again in Fauquier, BC

 

 October 17, 2016 was another milestone in the Peter and Gertrud Klopp story. For the day had finally arrived, when the long awaited modular home was delivered. It was a wet and dreary morning. It had rained all night and the ground around the construction site was getting soft and soggy. If you watched last week’s video showing the removal of our mobile home, you probably thought that the work was just about as tough as it could get. When you watch today’s video, you will find that the setting up of our new house was even tougher. Again the people of Hammer Pilot Car Services and R.J. Fisher Transport are to be commended for their outstanding work. In the spirit of teamwork every person was doing their best to make sure that the halves of the house were finally located at the precise spot, where the two pieces were going to be joined. However, the star was without a doubt Brian Coates of SSP Excavating. He came with his backhoe to the rescue, when the truck began slipping on the muddy ramp. With the help of a chain, Brian pulled the section into position. One more time three cheers to a job well done!

    Quite amazing, isn’t it!! They did a great job! I’ve looked into these modular homes and they really have a lot more space than one would imagine.

      Yes, there are quite spacious and of good quality. This is a 27 x 56 home. Lots of room for the family when they come for a visit.

    Hallo Peter,
    ich habe das Video wieder mit großem Interesse angesehen.
    Schon beeindruckend, wie man so ein Haus bekommen kann!
    Edda und ich wünschen Euch Beiden noch viele schöne “Goldene Jahre” darin.
    Ich werde mal aus einigen Videoschnappschüsse das Ganze im Zeitraffer mit einer gif herstellen.
    Schön, Dich auch wieder gesehen zu haben.
    Edda und Dieter

    That is fast and dry construction. Modular construction is also used in Finland.
