House Swapping

1 12 2012
Today I helped my friend move about 300m across town.

Today I helped two families move – into one another’s houses! In a town the size of Ísafjörður, where new construction is rare…. the only way to move to a new house is to arrange a swap with someone across town.  One family was sending their daughters off to college and looking to downsize while the other family was growing too big for their current residence. So they bought eachothers houses, then moved in and out in one day!

One family moved into Skipagata 10, while the other moved out!
