Log Home Rescue

Gail and Jim Stafford of Gates Mills, Ohio, are in jeopardy of losing their home. The 2,300-square-foot log and stone house sits at the edge of cliff above a 120-foot ravine. And now, because of record rainfall, the cliff is eroding and their house could slide off at any time. They now must pull their house back 70 feet from the edge. But that's easier said than done. The home weighs an estimated 180 tons! What's worse, the eroding cliff and heavily wooded terrain make it impossible to pull the home with a truck. The only hope of saving it is to move it to safer ground with a winch. It is a difficult, nearly impossible move, and there's no guarantee the home will survive intact. With everything they own and their life savings on the line, the Staffords battle the odds to pull their home back from the brink of disaster.
