Stone Mansion Relocation

Stone

Fort Washington, PA / December 2009

Wolfe House Movers was contracted to move this 40′ x 84′ three story mansion in 2009. The plan was to lift it up 14″, move it sideways 30′ and rotate it 15 degrees.  Because of rock ledge under the house, we first moved it back off of its footprint so the rock could be properly excavated and footers installed. Once that was completed, we moved the house forward over its new footers and supported it there while the new foundation was built up and grouted tight to the stone walls.
