This historic 175 year old stone house is located in an urban commercial area of Mentor, Ohio surrounded by a bank, shopping center, fast food, and gas stations.  The owner is anxious to redevelop the 3 acre site.  The alternative to moving the house is demolition.

ResErections, Inc. specializes in documenting, marketing, and disassembling architecturally unique 19th century stone houses that can be reconstructed on sites where the investment results in the creation of new real estate wealth.  Buyers save an endangered historic structure from demolition.  We can move it where you want it.

 

We document everything, photographing and labeling all the stones, carefully taking it apart enabling accurate reconstruction. The sandstone block is hand cut and 8 - 12" thick.  Walls are 2 ft thick.   We estimate that there is 400 tons of fine Berea Sandstone in the house.

We only work on stone buildings.  We insist on detailed total recovery of stone historic buildings and salvagable wooden components.  The stone used in historic houses is irreplacable.  Quarries have been closed and craftsman skills lost.

 

ResErections collaborates with local architects and tradesmen at both the source and destination of the buildings. We do not rebuild because we have no control over what the new owner and architect want to do. We build the supply chain between the seller and the buyer of reputable professional firms. We document the structure, supervise on-site work standards, disassemble the builing, and package and ship the recovered components. We are experts in material handling and logistics. We recover everything that will not crumble when touched.

 

We are only interested in moving complete historic buildings.  Buildings whose value will increase several times by relocation to suitable vibrant communities.  We create a great deal for the buyers, the sellers, the doers, and the public, turning American wealth into Americans at work.

 

ResErections actively markets with a nationwide email monthly newsletter to 30,000 architects, engineers, and construction professionals throughout North America.  Our value leverage is geographic arbitrage ... a house in a disadvantaged location in the Midwest can be worth a fortune in other markets.  

 


 

ResErections has completed disassembly of a similar building now in the process of reconstruction in Ohio.  We will use the same recovery and documentation techniques.
