Phoenix, AZ / August 2022

The David and Gladys Wright House is an iconic house built by Frank Lloyd Wright for his son and daughter-in-law in Phoenix, AZ. The house was an early prototype of the design Wright later incorporated into the Guggenheim Museum in New York City, a circular style with an ascending ramp. Although the fate of the home was up in the air for several years, a series of preservation efforts and thoughtful buyers were able to save and restore the house. Wolfe relocated a small guest house on the property, moving it 350′ onsite to be closer to the main house. The guest house was constructed of concrete block on a slab, with the roof connecting a small 8’x8′ exterior room. We excavated around the structure, saving the slab under the two building sections and demolishing the connecting slab between them. After lifting the house with our unified jacking system, we set it on beams and dollies and used our computerized SmartSteerĀ® System to drive it across the lot to its new location.
