As you probably know by now, my husband & I love to take drives through the country now that we live closer to it…
You probably also know that I love historic homes and even some that may not be classified as “historic” but more like broken-down, neglected, abandoned… etc…
As we drive by and I try to get a good shot of the house in a moving car…
I wonder what it looked like when it was newly constructed?
Who lived here? Where are they now? Why has it fallen to disrepair?
Can I buy it? What could I do to make it look nice again?
Maybe some new windows?
Some of the houses don’t look so bad… some actually look like they are being lived in (by people),
I saved the best for last!
This one if by far my favorite.
But, alas, someone beat me to it… they bought this pretty house and they are working hard at bringing it back to its former glory. I almost wish I could just walk up to them and say, “Need any help?” But I live too far to be of much use. I’m rooting for them, though.
They have already accomplished quite a bit and it won’t be long before this house looks amazing, like it probably looked when it was new. Then it will be ready to welcome a new family and impress those driving by (such as myself) with its beauty!
Happy Country Driving,
