Rockhaven Transforms Homes

Rockhaven enjoys the excitement and challenge of transforming a home. Transformations range from additions, renovations, to partial knockdowns that utilize an existing foundation. We have transformed historic farmhouses and almost-new homes.

In 2016, we moved a 3,200 sq.ft., 2-story, 124,000 lb. home across a very busy road, placed it on a new foundation, and replaced the exterior finishes. Exciting stuff! (See more here.)

To effectively transform your home requires a unique set of skills, a wealth of experience, good organization, the ability to see both the big picture and the details, and the expertise to complete the final project on time and on budget. To be done well, you should likely consider a number of building alternatives, and where you can make your best investment.
