If you look closely you'll see that there are two trucks and a long flatbed and you'll see that this is a big house. Last weekend when out on a run, I'd noticed trees being hacked at all along the boulevards and wondered why. Walking with a concerned neighbour this week, I'd heard that the chopping was to accommodate the house's move to an interior lot on the island. On Wednesday morning, though, it was all I could manage to get these shots and be on my way.
Over the next few days, I hope to show you some of the shots I took suggesting why my fellow islanders are so dismayed about the way this new home was brought on the island. While the technology is impressive, the wide swath such development leaves in its path dismays many of us, symptomatic as it is of a growing preference for 2400+square feet, where 1700 was once considered huge.
