What Would You Do If You Owned This House???
Destroy it, burn it? Not me, I would leave the old boards alone and just replace when they had to be. Leave the rusty old roof. You can see a bit of the porch in the front. I would have it repaired, put two rockers on it and hang bird feeders in the trees in front. I would sit and rock, think and ponder. Maybe have a little snack and something cold to drink and ponder some more, soak up the peace and quiet and thank God for all the things he has done for me. This house is on some acreage John bought several years ago. He probably owned it less then a year and had a chance to double his money. He didn't like the fact it had ticks on it plus the surrounding owners were installing high fences. Not to matter the deer couldn't come in, we don't hunt anyway. They couldn't stop the birds and turkeys. We could have walked only in the roads and trails and wore dog flea collars around our ankles. If it was worth so much then it should be worth even more in a few years. It already has a small pond near the house and he had a very large one dug far from the house in a place where water would run in when a big rain came. It is only about an hour from where we live and has all good roads until you get to the property. We could have fixed that or not gone out there in bad weather. After all it would only be a "get away" place to go to without much hassle. I think John regrets now not keeping it but he will probably never have another opportunity of that kind. What would you do with this old house?
