A road in Kitchener was closed for hours while construction crews installed a modular home.

The house was trucked in pieces from a facility in Wingham where it was manufactured.

Residents gathered on Mansion Street on Wednesday morning to watch as the prefabricated blocks were lifted high into the sky by a crane and then placed on top of a foundation.

The whole process took about seven hours to assemble the two-storey home and reopen the residential road.
