Impossible Ice

Brothers Wayne and Sean Bodenstab call house hauler Kerry Neufeld and his team to lift and shift their family cabin from the shores of Lake Kipabiskau, 150 miles to Sean's leisure resort where they can make more use of it. The cabin holds many special memories of their family holidays they've had there, so to keep it intact is very important to them all. But with trees blocking the main road to the resort, the only way the crew can haul it to the new site is to wait until the lake freezes solid, and then build an ice road to roll the house across. Several attempts to haul houses across frozen lakes have ended in disaster. Will Sean and Wayne's beloved cabin make the journey without sinking into the icy abyss?
