It's always an honor and a privilege to move historic houses and buildings to preserve history. We enjoyed doing just that when we moved the historic Roberts House in Piedmont, Alabama! Built in the late 1800's, this historic house was moved for the Piedmont Historical Society. This move was featured on the Anniston Star.
We are so honored to have been a 2016 contender for the Chamber of Commerce of Huntsville/Madison County's Business/Professional Services Small Business of the Year! Thank you so much to our customers, crew, and to the person or business who nominated us! And a special thank you to the Chamber of Commerce of Huntsville/Madison County for a wonderful evening at the Davidson Center for Space Exploration recognizing and honoring small businesses in our community who work hard to make North Alabama!
