Moxie Measure: Moving a house takes a lot of gumption. Moving two houses and combining them into a single one, without having any prior DIY experience? That's bordering on crazy. But reader M. David Bostic is happy to accept the label. Between 2006 and 2007, he dismantled two dilapidated timber-frame farmhouses (one built in 1772, the other in 1820), hauled them to Virginia's Northern Neck region, and reconstructed them into a family homestead.
