We have four authentic Colonial frame houses ... a large 1684, a family house from 1688, and a large 1755 - 1777 home for sale.  All are packed in trailers - ready to ship.  All are located in Connecticut.  Prices range from $ 40,000 to $ 192,000 ... + shipping.  They were disassembled by professionals for a University of Connecticut historic reconstruction project depicting colonial houses and were physically documented to be reconstructed.   Each has a documented history establishing the 1684, 1688, and the 1755-1777 dates.  

 

These remarkable structures represent key historic periods of pre-revolution Colonial America. The 1684 and 1688 houses are over 330 years old and are the oldest disassembled houses in the Americas.  These are wood frame houses that have been professionally documented, disassembled, packed in semi-trailers, and are ready to be shipped USA.

Early Colonials homes were built on small rural acreages - 2 - 5 acres + that the occupants could farm.  Now surrrounded by urban subdivisions, the land they occupy are prime resources for developers to infill with multiple houses.

 

Demolition threatens these architectural beauties.  Demolition sneaks up on buildings, as desirable redevelopment efforts function privately until the demolition permit is issued and the axe is already falling. Often the  buildings are going to be removed for good reasons by seasoned construction and development firms with institutional and government support.  Too often, they wind up in landfills.

 

It takes 2 days to demolish, but 2 months to document and disassemble a frame house.   Worthy endangered houses can be moved by local professional architects, engineers, and construction tradesmen resulting in a historic, modern, efficient house on desirable sites worth far more than it cost.  

 

Most historic structures suitable for preservation are supported by public interest, funding, tax credits, historic listings, et al. ... placing costly technical requirements on new owners often requiring continuous communal oversight and public funding.  It is often not worth the effort, and worthy architecture is lost to redevelopment and demolition by the inability to secure enough money to save and sustain the building.  ResErections sidesteps these issues by securing a private buyer for the house at prices reflecting the low costs of carefully documented disassembly ... each item is identified on schematics and numbered with metal tags and packed in truck trailers.

 

ResErections does not rebuild.  Prices quoted herein are for the work ResErections actually performs ... acquisition, documentation, disassembly, and preparation of shipping and our perception of the value of the rebuilt house.  Freight costs would depend on distance.  The buyer will need to employ local architectural trade professionals to rebuild. 

 

These houses are free from oversight by authorities other than the future site's municipal building department.  There are no committees to satisfy.  The owner and his architect/engineering staff are free to redesign each house to the owner's desires.  We hope that the external character of the house is retained and enhanced, and expect the interiors to be comfortably modern.  The combined 1755-1777 houses are large enough to command a high- end redevelopment.

 

They can be successfully rebuilt on new sites with the participation of local architect/construction firm employed by the buyer.  Architecture is a local business.  66% of firms have less than 5 partners, and 90% of income is disbursed as salaries.  They have expertise, and most importantly, connections with local building departments and local craft trades resources.  With their participation in planning, it is possible to secure bank mortgages.  The final cost of a reconstructed house would probably be 3 to 4 times the disassembly cost. 

 

ResErections will not tie the buyer's reconstruction efforts to  bureaucratic qualifications for government tax credits or require the employment of certified historic craftsmen and archivists or seek protective covenants and expensive finicky rehabilitation agreements ensuring that the buildings will be protected from changes. We do not offer cultural resource management, historic preservation planning, historical research, litigation encouragement and support, and academic grantsmanship.   We will not solicit government - taxpayer - dollars to do the work.   You Buy It ... We Ship it ... You ReBuild It ... You Own It.
