Arrow Little Mark Island

We got a big surprise the other day driving by Little Mark Island.
(I searched, but could not find any posts about this)

Iím going to miss that pretty little cottage. I would imagine that starting with a fresh build made more sense.

wow, that was there a few weeks ago when I drove by with my dad. Sad to see an old cottage go, I always like the older looking cottages. But I'm sure that on an island like that it gets to a point that there is just too much to repair.

It was beautifully restored not too many years ago but a family member got in legal trouble and the house sat. I am not sure when they sold it, but it never looked lived in after that, not sure if it was. I guess we all are sad to see quaint houses disappear.

On one of the Facebook posts, it was stated the house will be rebuilt the same way.

I would imagine given the size of the island they have no other choice but to follow the footprint unless they made it smaller and went up?
