Model Home on the Move

In Covington, La., Arlo Guthrie and his daughter, Jenny, are moving a "model home" that a developer built for a new subdivision in 1988 because the developer now wants to tear the house down to make way for a new model. The house is only moving 500 feet, but it was built on a concrete foundation and it is estimated to weigh a massive 200 tons. Mover Warren Davie's crew must lift the entire house up and out of the ground without cracking the concrete foundation. Rain and mud are a constant threat to the team's deadline. By the time they actually get the house on the road, a new set of problems set in, and the team fights to get the house onto the new lot before dark.
