We had a wonderful “kickoff” meeting today with the city and architects for the restoration of the Stone House.

I know we have many historians in Wylie and if any of you have or know someone who might have older pictures of the house that you could share it would be so appreciated.

I am going to contact the family in the coming days to see if they also might have pictures to share.

Lots of exciting things to come...

Great News! The city has brought on a team to begin work at Stonehaven! Architexas - Architecture, Planning and Historic Preservation, Inc. and Kimley-Horn & Associates will start soon, along with their current work at Wylie's Brown House.

Here's the plan for the new location. The house will be the cornerstone for the new neighborhood & be surrounded by a walking trail, picnic area and play park.

Did you know Wylie Historical Society is moving Stone Haven house to restore? The house at the corner of Alanis and Ballard, dirt is moving.
And if you are so inclined and have corporate sponsored Employee Giving Campaign (like United Way drive) The historical society is a 501C3 and would appreciate your support.

Looks like we may be getting piers!

The house has been raised several feet and the steel is almost in place. They will put it on rollers tomorrow to move it off of the foundation. The original concrete foundation is too complicated to get the full rig under the house.

The saga continues!

Ok, as of today the Stone House is prepped and ready to move. They will
attempt to jack up the house tomorrow morning and see if the ground under
the house is stable enough. If that goes well they will try and move the
house...I assume just before lunch but I'm not for certain.

It very well many not happen tomorrow because the rain has filled up the
basement once again and thus has allowed the soil under the house to remain
very soft. They were working on dewatering the basement just this morning
but they seemed overly optimistic that it would be dry enough by tomorrow.
