Preserving the Magnificent

ResErections, Inc. specializes in documenting, marketing and disassembling architecturally unique and historical homes that can be reconstructed on sites where the costly investment in renovation results in the creation of new real estate wealth.  We save wonderful historic buildings from demolition.

Recent developments in Laser Imaging and Measurement and AutoCad and BIM - (building information modeling) architectural software and RFID item tagging (radio frequency identification) has made the difficult task of disassembly, relocation, and accurate reconstruction of buildings practical.

These magnificent homes were built by noted architects with the finest materials and craftsmanship that only the very wealthy could afford in the days before income taxes.  Natural stone of the highest quality.  Timbers of hardwoods and pines that today would be sold by the pound as too valuable for any use but veneer.  Interior furnishings that reflect the refined tastes of the era.  Many have magnificent fireplaces and interior wooden trim.

Each of these houses were built for successful entrepreneurs and merchants by famed architects of the late 19th century.  Each house has a history and reflects the wealth of their creators.  

However, these houses were built before the automobile, and are located near the urban heart of older American cities.  Suburbanization after WWII left these masterpieces behind, and their neighborhoods declined.  That is the case with the properties above, located in unsafe neighborhoods that have a preponderance of disadvantaged urban housing.  In many cases, the removal of the house would allow the land they occupy to be put to a higher end use.  The problem of these houses is that they are where they are, and not where rational economic people would spend the resources to save them.  

We love these old houses, and wouldn’t touch a house that is a grace to its surroundings.  We are looking for great old STONE houses that are located in unfortunate inner city type environments or are in the way for communities that need the site for public and private purposes.  There are many neglected architectural beauties that meet this description facing demolition.  We save them in a new location.

Recent developments in Laser Imaging and Measurement and AutoCad and BIM - (building information modeling) architectural software and RFID item tagging (radio frequency identification) has made the difficult task of disassembly, relocation, and accurate reconstruction of buildings practical.

The Greenest Building is One Already Built   "Preservation saves energy by taking advantage of the nonrecoverable energy embodied in an existing building and extending the use of it"  Advisory Council on Historic Preservation. With state of the art engineering and reconstruction, the recycled building will qualify for a USGBC LEED Gold or Platinum rating.

Disassembly of each of these houses will create 15 jobs at the origin site and in the supply chain. 

Moving these houses is expensive, involving several professions and crafts.  Reserections manages the entire process of disassembling and shipping these architecturally valuable residences and employs a wide range of experienced contractors and other experts to document, disassemble, and transport them.

It costs several million to move a mansion.  This investment is immediately rewarded with a real estate property worth more than the money spent, so the actual cost is zero. 


Private Offers and Sales:   Reserections will conduct searches and provide services.

Victorian Gothic   $ 3,000,000  This house is available privately. 

 

 

 

This 19th century Victorian Gothic style castle was built in 1881 by architects C&R for a gilded age merchant in a major midwest city.  The four story 6,100 sqft residence has more than twenty rooms, five marble fireplaces, 80 windows, and extensive fancy woodcarvings. A ballroom runs the length of the house in the fourth floor of the manor.  Turrets and gargoyles enhance the facade, giving the house a pronounced "castle" appearance.   Call or Email ResErections for link to photos and details.
