The Wolfe House and Building Movers Company amazed the public in Illinois by moving a large old mansion. The building was situated in the center of Chicago, the State of Illinois. The house was constructed in 1888. Nevertheless, the firm managed to relocate it without any damage. The weight of the mansion made of the bricks was about 2,000,000 pounds.
The relocation was carried out in November of 2014. In Illinois, House Movers had to enable special vehicles because of the significant weight of the building. The machines included the following types:
- Buckingham Power Dolly System
- Hydraulic Drive Units.
The number of Dollies required amounted to 30. At the same time, the number of the Hydraulic Drive Units was just two. The latest were diesel-powered.
The mansion was replaced one block to the north. The new lot was situated on the opposite side of the same street.
The conductor company faced several challenges during the fulfillment of the relocation. The biggest problem was that after placement of the building to a new lot, at one point there was 2″ clearance on one side and 8″ clearance on the other side (with a few feet clearance at the front of the mansion).
Nevertheless, the relocation works were successfully completed and the house took its place in the new lot.
