One person’s loss is another’s gain, which means there was one happy family Wednesday when a barge brought a fine, two-story house to the shores of Whidbey Island at Mutiny Bay.
The house was offloaded and spent the night at the public parking lot at Mutiny Bay, and the next day was moved to its final resting place at a lot on East Mutiny Lane.
From there the Schinnerer family, including Mike and Annie and their two children, Kailey, 10, and Teige, 7, can enjoy island life along with a stunning view of Mutiny Bay, Admiralty Inlet and sunsets over the Olympics.
