'Prefab' home installation closes Columbia Avenue

The 15600-block of Columbia Avenue in White Rock will be closed to traffic today to facilitate installation of two “prefab” homes.

InHaus Development’s Dave deBruyn said the closure will take effect around 6:30 a.m. and continue for much of the day.

DeBruyn said the homes are to be trucked one piece at a time from a site in the 1100-block of King George Boulevard to 15611 and 15619 Columbia Ave.

There, each piece will be craned over power lines –  about 25 feet – and onto the lots.

Built “on spec,” deBruyn said he expects to list them for between $1.25-$1.3 million each.
