It looks like Kyle MacDonald, the 26-year-old Montreal man who set out to trade a single red paper clip for a house, has accomplished his ambitious goal.
MacDonald will be giving his most recent trade----to the city of Kipling, Saskatchewan in exchange for a two-story farmhouse, according to his blog, "one red paperclip." The deal will become official once MacDonald shakes hands with the mayor of his new home town on Wednesday, exactly one year after he announced his endeavor, he wrote.
"One red paperclip. One house. One year," he wrote, of his 14-trade saga. "A great statement as it is, but you better believe the first thing we're going to do is paint the house red. Please don't ask me why I'm going to paint it red. Like the beer keg, I think we can all agree it's just one of those things that has to be done."
