Last Hoge Island Home Moved

Posted:

The last flooded house on Hoge Island is moved to a new home today.

The house fell victim to the 2011 Missouri River flood, but the new owner plans to fix up it up and make it look as good as new.

<<The Burleigh County Water Resource District bought out three properties on Hoge Island after the 2011 flood, in order to build a new levee to protect other homes.

The water district then put the houses on those properties up for bidding.

Clint Feland bought this one known as "the Rodgers' home" and is moving it about a mile and a half north on highway 1804.

He also purchased this house known as "the Boll home."

"These homes didn't at least these two didn't receive much damage as a lot of people would probably believe, it was more of a foundation, structural issue with the earth they were sitting on," Clint Feland said.

Feland already has the foundation poured for the Rodgers' home.

"Basically going to get it on the foundation be very minimal remodeling, the Boll home we're going to do extensive renovation to," Feland said.

As far as the future of the two houses, Feland says he doesn't plan to sell them.

"Probably going to keep them in the family, I eventually plan on living in one myself, haven't exactly decided what we will do with the other one, I've got about eight acres of land out here, they seemed like a couple of nice homes, I hated to see them demolished," Feland said.

It only took crews about two hours to move the Rodgers' home, and even though they had to trim trees and dig out of the mud, Feland says it's pretty easy moving a house this size.

"You know there's very little challenge anymore these days moving a home, our biggest challenge was the weather," Feland said.

And he hopes the weather will continue to cooperate because next he plans to put the house on the foundation.>>

Feland also purchased a garage and shop from the two properties.
