2601 West Woodlawn Avenue | Moving the Garage
December 6th, 2009
We moved the Garage from 2601 West Woodlawn this week. We developed an agreement with a local building recycler to remove the garage in exchange for the price of demolition. This was great for everyone involved! We were able to cut the demolition of the garage from our budget which saved the client quite a bit of money. The movers used hydraulic jacks to elevate the garage onto a trailer and take it to a site where it could be sold to someone who could use the building. In exchange for the moving fees we donated the structure. It is great to see the building being re-used instead of ending up in the landfill!!
We lifted the garage and then moved it around 4:00 in the morning so that there would be less traffic on the roads during the move. We left the garage totally wired and with an operable garage door. Hopefully it will be purchased by someone who can put the garage to good use.
We will replace the old single car garage with a new structure that will accommodate two cars and include an attached woodworking shop. Our client is a woodworking craftsman & the new shop will give him a great place to make art from natural materials. We are matching many of the existing details of the existing bungalow style home with ornate brackets and exposed rafter tails.
