House moving

I was wondering if anybody on here has had a home moved to another site. I have found a wonderful 100 year old home for $10,000, that is just beautiful. The problem is the home is in northern Texas and my land is in NW Arkansas. It is a two story, 3300 sq ft. home. I've tried to find out approximately what it would cost to move something like that so far, but I've had no success. Has anybody else faced such a challenge? I love old homes, and it is an excellent value for this house. My husband says that it will cost more to move it than we could ever afford. :waa:
Is he right? :(

ps I'm also posting this question on the Countryside Family forum in case somebody there knows also. Thanks for your help.

The house I had moved was free except for restoring the site. Initial price quoted for the move was $14000 and was adjusted downward to $10000 with me doing some of the prep. Houses are typically moved less than 35 miles in this area. The price difference between a 5 mile move and a 35 mile move is only a few thousand dollars.
