Free House Alert

A little white three-bedroom house in North Oakland is blocking the neighboring UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland's expansion, and the hospital is offering would-be owners the home free of charge if they can take it away. The hospital will also give the new owner the $20K it would otherwise spend on demolishing the structure. Moving the home will be expensive, however: the Chronicle notes that it will likely need to be carved into pieces so that it can fit under the elevated BART tracks and travel safely on roads. [SFGate]
