League City, Texas Elevations

Six LC homes plagued by floods being elevatedEHM is featured on the front page of today’s The Galveston County Daily News.

In the article, EHM’s project manager, Bobby Fischer, EHM’s project manager, Bobby Fischer explains the process of lifting a League City home as part of a FEMA program to have homes elevated out of the severe flood range.

The four houses to be lifted in the Empress Lane neighborhood are from 2,000 to 4,000 square feet and weigh about 225 tons, said Bobby Fischer, project manager for Expert House Movers.
The lifting process does not disturb the inside of the house, he said. Tunnels are dug under the house, and jacks and pilings are put in place. The jacks are hooked up to a unified jack system, which ensures the house comes up evenly, Fischer said.”

Exciting news! Expert House Movers has been featured in […]]]>

Exciting news! Expert House Movers has been featured in the book Monster Moves: Adventures in Moving the Impossible. You can click here to purchase the book & DVD on Amazon. As seen on TV, this showcases moves from across the globe. Here’s one purchaser’s review:

I’ve always enjoyed the Monster Moves TV show – it’s fun and full of interesting engineering at the same time. The book is really well put together – loads of behind the scenes photos and stories that weren’t in the TV series. The free DVD is great too – I’ve been trying to get hold of the series on DVD here in the UK but can’t find it (although you can get it in Australia, I think). My kids (9 and 13) love all the big trucks and photos of the buildings moving through the countryside. My favourite one is the locomotive moving from South Africa to Glasgow – we went to see the train when we there in October. The new series on TV has a great episode about sinking a ship – I hope they bring out volume 2 of this book.

We are thrilled to be featured here and are grateful for the opportunity to tell our family’s story!
