Hales Moving Company in Giddings moved their last house last Tuesday. Pictured above are C.W. Hales, Mike Nevius, James Johnson, James Williams and Mike Kennedy. PHOTO BY DONALD BORIACK. The C. W. Hales Moving Company located on Hwy. 290 just east of Giddings moved their last house Tuesday, June 2. The home was a 16' x 40' cabin owned by Donald and Karen Boriak of Fedor and it was being moved to Mike Kennedy's land in Paige.

C.W. Hales has been moving structures for more years than some can count. In order to help keep his employees busy when there wasn't a lot of moving to do, he began building replicas of oldfashioned dog-trot style homes that quickly found popularity in and around Central Texas. The original homes he built were twostory and less than 600 square feet. Aparently those popular homes will have to find a new builder as Hales plans to just retire and slow down, taking time to enjoy a slower pace of living.
