In April the western Latvia newspaper Kursas laiks reported an absurd situation in which the quite obvious holiday home was deemed an ocean-going vessel in an apparently successful attempt to circumvent planning laws that prevent the construction of new buildings on or very close to the shoreline.
Now, owner Argods Lūsiņš does not offer comment over the move, but says that the house was moved August 24. He sent LTV photos confirming the fact.
It was, at one point, planned to move the house on a barge, but the maritime authority did not deem the object seaworthy.
The Pāvilosta local authority confirmed to LTV that the house has been moved at least 150 meters away from the seashore, as per the Latvian law.
