Nickel Brothers workers check the wheels as they move author PK Page's former home on Exeter Road. Workers parked the house at the end of the road waiting for the tide to come in to load on a barge. The 87 foot house was bought by a family and is being relocated to Chemainus.

P.K. Page's Oak Bay home will float away to Chemainus

Today (April 29), P.K. Page’s Oak Bay home will be uprooted, placed on a barge and shipped down the Georgia Strait to Chemainus, its new home.

At about noon the house moved from its current location to the corner of Exeter Rd. and Beach Dr., where it will sit until about 6 p.m. when it will be moved to Loon Park to be loaded on a barge around 9 p.m. The barge will depart tonight and will be offloaded about 8 p.m. the tomorrow evening in Chemainus.

The house is being moved by Nickel Brothers.

P.K. Page spent the latter years of her life in the house, after a career writing poetry, fiction, essays and an autobiography. She died in 2010 at the age of 93.
