Dream House Haul

Melissa Massingill and Jim Fiero are planning their wedding, and they've found the perfect place to hold the ceremony. It's a 100-year-old four-square home in Lampasas, Texas, that they bought for the bargain price of just $25,000. They fell in love with the home's vintage charm, and Melissa can't wait to walk down its winding wooden staircase on her wedding day. Now all they have to do is move the house so they can get married in it and live happily ever after! The reason for the move?Making way for new development. Melissa and Jim plan to haul it 65 miles through Texas Hill Country to their seven acres of rural land. To move the house, they will literally have to cut it in two because it is too tall to make it in one piece. The top story will have to be sliced off of the bottom, according to Melissa, "just like you were taking the top layer off a cake." Doing so does not guarantee a successful move, and the long journey could be especially hard on the fragile and detached top floor. But it's a risk this couple is willing to take to get the wedding and home of their dreams.
