Not that everyone has loads of money....but when it comes to homes, most of them are spacious.
The average home (around here) has a total living space of around 25oo square feet. You will find some that have around 1200 square feet, but most houses are 2500 and up, up, up and up!! Space seems to be the big thing.
Most people, when looking for a house to buy, are mostly interested in having a big kitchen. I find this humorous since most folks around here eat out numerous times a week, including us.
I'd say that a large kitchen is the thing to have......well, at least a little bit bigger than this one.
Most of us have utility rooms that are bigger than this kitchen!!
The land in the header photo is a picture of the land which Trista and her family are building their new home on. The dirt work is going to start in about a week. But first, the old wooden framed house has got to be knocked down.
(I know that there must have been a lot of good memories for those who once lived in this old home)
Today, I rode out to the land with Trista and Tori. After much begging, I finally got out of the car and went inside the old, run down, house. I honestly can not believe that I took one step inside......especially since there are have been many sightings of a panther around and in that area. (I'm going to estimate that this house is at least 50, maybe 60, 70 years old)
This is what I would call a very simple home! Who knows....way back then, it may have been a mansion!!
Take a look with me....
In this photo, I'm standing in the family room. This was a vent for the old wood burning stove. Behind the brick is a small bedroom.
The kitchen....!! I sure wish that I had taken a picture of the other wall....but you see, I was standing at the other wall.....
Very Small Kitchen!
Area that connects both bedrooms and the bathroom!
Sorry.....this picture turned out blurry!!
The ceiling of the back bedroom...
And.....this is it!!
Within the next week or so, this house will be demolished and before long a brand new home will be standing in it's place.....
folks......we have sure come a long way in life. This family lived in this simple little home and I am sure that not only did they have all that they needed, but they were probably very happy and content.

Hope you enjoyed my tour of "This Old House"
