If the homestead is returned in the appraisement at more than the value of the homestead exemption set forth in W.S. 2-7-508, the appraisers shall determine whether the premises can be divided without material injury. If they can be divided, the appraisers shall admeasure and set apart to the parties entitled thereto the portion of the premises, including the dwelling house, as will amount in value to the homestead exemption and make report thereof giving the metes, bounds and full description of the portion set apart as a homestead. If the appraisers find that the premises exceed in value the homestead exemption and the premises cannot be divided without material injury, they shall report the finding, and thereafter the court may make an order for the sale of the premises and the distribution of the proceeds to the parties entitled thereto.
