she bought the barn
about fifteen years ago, my mother bought this house in the town she grew up in. it is a retreat home for her in an historic area near mountains and a large lake. this past week, while we were visiting, she was given the opportunity to purchase the rest of the lot which had been divided when she first purchased the home. so today she owns all of this land's original structures, some dating back to the late 1800's, including the original brick house, an early 1900's addition with a covered porch, a summer kitchen, a barn, a double wide trailer and two wells.

all of this information brings me to my BIG project. along with my grandmother and my mother, i am going to fix up the trailer. my task is to make it 'fit in' to the property grounds on the exterior, while making it a cozy dwelling on the interior. first step: paint it white.
