The Schifter house is moving right along, literally: "The home has been excavated down to 20 feet below grade. It will be lifted onto 20 self-propelled dollies equipped with hydraulic jacks and linked together to ensure that the house remains level as it creeps 275 feet over a three- to four-day period. Its new location is on property the family purchased last year for $4.5 million." Meanwhile, the garage, guesthouse and 2,200 square foot neighboring house have already been moved.
