Love the house but hate the location? Now is your chance to GO GREEN and MOVE IT with Davie Shoring. House moving is the epitome of recycling. Moving and existing home is economical and it saves time and energy.
Here are the facts:
- On average, new house construction costs $80-$200 per sq. ft., BUT moving an existing home costs $10-$100 per sq. ft. depending on the house, the route and the time involved.
- New house construction on average can use an amount of lumber equal to over 100 trees…and the trees used in new home construction take 17 years or more to grow
- Plus, while new home construction can take a year or more, moving a home can take as little as one month from start to finish.
