I have a little timber cottage with an iron roof in a metro location that no longer suits the area (no off street parking, too close to footpath and not very noiseproof). The suburb is fetching well above $1,000,000 for more modern homes with off street parking so I am thinking it is time for my lovely 110 year old cottage to go. I also have a federation house on a large block of land in a large regional centre that I would like to move the cottage to. The original parts of the cottage in the metro location measure 59m2 and I am thinking of moving it onto my regional block as a granny flat, but the block would be big enough to subdivide if desired. However well renovated houses on large blocks are selling for around 1.2 million so I'm not sure that subdivision would be best in this case. I have looked into house removal costs but I was wondering if it would possible to cut it into wall/floor/truss panels to transport and the reassemble at the new location. I wondered if this might be cheaper (instead of paying for permits etc for house relocation for both councils plus the hydraulic lifter, RTA escorts through town, etc) if it could instead be like a "prefab" situation where then panels could be "flatpacked" for transport and then joined together in the new location again. If there has ever been a case of "you don't know what you don't know" then this is it, and I have no building experience so if that is the dumbest suggestion you've ever heard, then please be kind!!!
