House & Building Moving

Timberville, VA, USA / October 2020

When the owner of this beautiful farmhouse decided to renovate it, the new design plan included moving the house several hundred yards away from the road to the back of the property. After an initial phone consultation, Wolfe House Movers sent an estimator out to meet with the client, go over the building, and survey the prospective move route. Despite some moderate grades, Wolfe was able to route the 500-yard move through the pasture, eliminating the time and expense of installing a gravel road. Wolfe’s crews placed steel beams under the 36’x54′ 2-story house and front porch, lifted it several feet, and installed three sets of hydraulic dollies to carry the house to the new location. The autumn weather cooperated nicely, the move went smoothly, and the house looked right at home in its idyllic new setting, where it sat supported on cribbing and beams for a couple more weeks while the new foundation was constructed. When the foundation was finished, Wolfe returned to lower the house to its final elevation and remove the steel beams and cribbing.
