Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario will be moving a donated home from London to Ingersoll on May 16th.

INGERSOLL - Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario is getting ready for a big move.

They are going to transport a donated home in London, to a new property in Ingersoll on May 16th.

CEO Brian Elliot says members of the public are welcome to come and witness the big move.

"We're actually going to set up a staging area in Ingersoll for when the house arrives. It will be at the corner of Bell Street and Margaret Street; we will actually have some people there getting ready and we will be celebrating around the corner."

The home will leave London with a police escort starting at 9am. The bricks will be removed from the home's exterior because it would be too heavy to transport otherwise.

CEO Brian Elliot says the ranch style home is 22ft by 41ft.

"The current home right now has three bedrooms upstairs. It will have a full basement; we've poured the foundation already so we actually have room to add bedrooms in the basement on this property. It's a nice open concept home, large living room, dining room and bathroom facility so it's well laid out so we can have a family of two up to a family of six."

Habitat for Humanity is also looking for a family to move in. You can find more information on their website.
