Saskatchewan farmer finds house in his field

Posted on Friday, 3 November, 2017 | Comment icon 26 comments

The house was certainly a nice one. Image Credit: Facebook / Patrick Maze
Patrick Maze was shocked to discover that an entire house had appeared on his property overnight.
The mysterious house, which seemed to be brand new, turned up right in the middle of one of his fields to the east of Regina without explanation.

Perplexed by the discovery, he asked his friends on Facebook if they knew anything about it.

"Have any of you ever found a house ?" he wrote. "This one was discovered on my property early Thursday morning on my way to work. It is still there this morning."

"Perhaps someone stole it and took it for a joy ride, then ditched it on my property ?"

It eventually turned out that a moving company had been transporting the house from Winnipeg to just outside Lumsden when an issue cropped up with the permits and the driver had decided to leave it in the field until the documentation could be sorted out.

"I know I don't get to keep it," joked Maze. "It is no big deal."

Love the farmers name...Mr Maze, he should have stuck an 'i' in it. As for the house..i see mobile homes transported often, we got 3 mobile home parks in my area, but they sort their paperwork out before they set off as have never seen any planted in a field. The driver is lucky he got away with this, he did not have the documentation to plot it down in the farmers field...either.

Just thought of this, most pre-fab homes are transported in 2 pieces as not to use two lanes of a highway with a wide load truck in front and sometimes in the back as well.  Kind of berserk if the trucker was by himself.

Just to add... The adage "possession is 9/10ths of the Law" has NOT been true for a very long time. It needs to get OUT of people's heads and was likely due to early drug and contraband transfer. Today, possession means just so much, and ownership means a whole lot more. I have private property, and if someone mistakenly parks a home on my property... I have zero legal ownership. I can not just go claim that item, unless it is legally "abandoned" on my property. In all cases I need to contact the authorities and have them settle the issue.

This reminds me of the article where someone's house was stolen. The downside to having the technology to move houses, yeah?
