Location, location, location...

Small houses fascinate me. Roger's Red House on Bryant is inspiring and while checking out this new Buffalo Blog - I noticed this post.
269 Fox Street - Buffalo, NY

The house on the left at 1107 Gilman Avenue, San Francisco - on the right 269 Fox Street, right here in Buffalo, NY. I've pretty much determined that it's the smallest house in Buffalo - based on frontage - and is being readied for the land-fill.

Wrote about 269 Fox Street last September - Smallest House? It's owned by the City and we'll be spending 10-12K for the demolition. Meanwhile, 1107 Gilman...$469,000...yikes!

Here's the listing details. Wonder what it would cost to move a house 2658 miles. Hmmm....

It is an interesting little house. Has their been any consdireation to moving it? it seems like it might fit on the back of a flatbed. Maybe for infill on coes place.
