House relocation

Hi folks and neighbors,

Just to keep you in the picture …

We are expecting our relocatable house to be arriving to our place up Wech Access Road on Wednesday 1st of March. This will likely be in the wee hours of the morning.

The house moving company will be coming from the highway 16 end and we expect the truck to get to Wech Access around 4am. Please be careful if you intend to be on the road around these times.

Best Regards,

Ian and Opal Moir
