The Bunk House
on The Broke 4 home place
Now we fast forward to four months ago, sixteen years later and were at it again. Our place has been paid for many years back and it needed a face look before my husband retires. We started by pulling up all the carpet indoors and having wood floors laid throughout the house, then we started on the outside of the house last month.... So the hammering, drilling, and noise began again taking off the old siding and putting Red Barn Tin on the complete house. The house was finally finished this week and we love the new look...

Before and After
This is the house that we raised two beautiful daughters in.
This house is where chickenpox and measles were quarantined. This is the house where our girls raised pigs, horses, chickens. and rabbits. Where sand crabs lived in a bowl, pet hamsters escaped from their cages, and parakeets flew out the front door. This is the house where Santa put smiles on our children's faces, where the Easter bunny hid his eggs all over the yard, and birthday party's and sleep overs heard lots of laughter. This is also the house where many tears were shed, daughters brought their husbands to be , and bedroom soon became empty. This is the house where family gathered for a funeral and where family gathered for reunions. This is the house where now our grandchildren play and a new generation grows up all over again, right before our eyes....
But, the more important thing about this old house... Its the house that God blessed us with, gave us those memories, and continues to pour his blessing on. This is the house where we will die one day.
Our project list still has a few things to do, like the two vehicle garage were adding next on the left end of the house, finishing the stalls in the barn, and adding a new closed in tool shed. will the list be complete, probably not. But this old house is ours.
