Our Farm House
Our Farm House was built in 1940. I often wonder how many of the men that built it boarded the MKT Train and went off to World War II. And? How many made it back home again? Was the Master of this home called out for war? Did he come home? Could the new home owners have had a son or sons called out?
This home is lovely and for Deron and I, perfect for us! We love that it is ALL brick, has a full walk out basement, the big front porch, and a Sunroom in the back. We love that it is three bedroom with HUGE closets, four in all, and that the kitchen is so large and large dining room right off the kitchen.
Do we offer a Bed and Breakfast here? Not at this time. I have learned to 'Never Say Never', but we do not have plans to open our home for business.
One of the things that I said I wanted in a new home for Deron and I was a large Front Porch. I have always loved to sit outdoors and craft or read or just sit and watch nature. Deron and I sit out on our porch and watch the Lighting Bugs come out. And or watch as the Bicycle Riders and Hiker go by on Katy Trail. Funny thing about the Trail Users, and not just Katy but all the Trails Deron and I have used for many many years, friendly, nice people.
The Sun Room - Back Porch
The Jacuzzi and Huge Shower
Deron and I did not have running water for over 20 years. No. I am not joking. Deron and I lived off grid. And. No Kidding. Deron and I did NOT have running water or Hot Shower in our home for over 20 years! So this big old tub with a shower, and Hot Running Water! Such a Blessing!
When we bought the house they told us that the Jacuzzi did not work. Ok. We wanted to redo the Bathroom anyway....not a big deal.
One day Deron was working on our electric and THE JACUZZI CAME ON! It has worked ever since. Oh My! the two of us enjoy that thing, together, after a long Bicycle Ride....OH MY HOT JACUZZI! We are so blessed!
It had to be a "God Thing".
Basement With Washer and Dryer!
Along with not having Running Water, no washer and drier, and THAT is hard after ALWAYS owning them.
The Washer and the Drier we have might be older, but dang! They clean the clothes. Older might even be better!
It is so nice to not have to go to the Laundromat! And the money we are saving! Thank You Lord, for this Blessing too!
This house has HUGE Closets! Huge! Four of them! We might be filling them up!
There is an Larger, Older Shed here with a concrete floor. We have plans for it. But not this year, probably not next!
Down the road.
Deron mentioned tearing it down when we looked at this place. NO! NO! NO!
