On the outskirts of Winnipeg, and I imagine in many North American cities, there are house shops with a collection of brand new houses ready to truck to the buyer’s site. They stand on stacks of wood ready to be moved. When the rollerskating rink closed on Portage close to Downtown these houses resembled a second hand house shop. In fact they were being taken from the site (in 2007) to be reused elsewhere. They look like standard pattern book houses but apparently required quite a few adaptations to their new location due to context specific aspects such as rights of light and overlooking. Note the truck wheels already under the houses ready for their move.
