Preserving the Magnificent

!!  Don't Think Small  !!

Mansions ReLocated to Your Site

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.

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, and package and ship the recovered components. We recover everything that will not crumble when touched.

Both buildings will be reconstructed in Texas this spring and summer.  We have disassembled both buildings, the 1885 Queen Anne from Walnut Hills, and a 1904 Church designed by Frank Mills Andrews from Middletown, Ohio.

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 (we cannot save brick buildings.) 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.  We are not interested in renovating buildings on their original sites, but specialize in moving endangered stone mansions to new sites.

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.

Purchaser is responsible for design and construction activities after delivery of the house components to destination. It is recommended that the purchaser engage the services of a local architect and construction firm to reconstruct the house.

There will be substantial work for the buyer's architects at both the current location and future site.  ResErections will collaborate on the disassembly methods, and integrate LIDAR, RFID, and other digital information into AutoCAD and BIM software systems.

In America, preservation and restoration is a very profitable billion dollar industry.  Maintenance of public and historic structures is a high art, with many professional practitioners.  There is no shortage of work to do, and the majority of the work is paid for institutionally, by government, taxpayers, or other cultural organizations.   It is by no means a non-profit business.  Professional preservationists have an obligation to selectively and responsibly put limited talents and money where the best of heritage is preserved rather than telling others what their limited resources and public tax money should be spent on.  Revenue motivated advocates often whip up public hysteria and rely on legal obstructionism to preserve old structures under the guise of "non-profit" - but salary paying organizations.  Good solutions to reclaiming and using historic structures are criticized as not good enough, resulting in decay and loss, and worthy structures are demolished because enough money could not be found to do a better thing.  Many structures are located in areas where it is impractical to renovate on site.  Moving endangered structures is a often a far better result than scavenging for individual components and demolition.


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

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.
