The couple have experience moving houses — Amanda Skogquist’s parents moved a farm house in 2010; Erik Skogquist also moved a farm house in Nowthen years ago.

Erik Skogquist said moving the house, pouring a basement and driveway, connecting utilities and building a garage would cost $100,000. The couple planned to do much of the renovation themselves over the next five to 10 years, converting the four apartments into a four-bedroom home.

“We know there is a lot of work involved,” he said. “I’ve grown up in Anoka. I’ve lived in older homes my whole life. There is a lot of character and history involved with these old home. They are built really well. They have good materials and interesting features. It takes work to restore but there’s a lot those houses have to offer.”
