Thanks.  Do I move all files AND folders?  Web.config too?

Only files and folders. Web config contents have to be merged, so you can benefit from the new references tools that comes with it, please check link below for more details:

In what version of Visual Studio was this ASP.NET Website created? The new Web project will also need the web.config file.

The website was built using vs2013 and I will be using vs2013 to create the project as well.
In that case, the link I sent you in my previous comment is fully relevant. It is an step by step procedure on how to do it, but as always they do not take in account every possible scenario, thus the reason to to a third party/feature code audit before conversion starts

Miguel's solution was very well researched.
