The Madison House looked huge from this perspective… at least to this old country boy, who had once lived in a tent for eight months, when he first got married… and in a travel trailer for five years, during his youth.
But 2,600 square feet for a family of five was just right… maybe even, a bit small.
There are a few things I’d like to point out here in this photo…
Notice that we have finished up the stone foundation. I added rock piers and old barn timbers to support the porch above the walk-out basement. This area down below became a very pleasant area.
Also, on the side of the house, is a large bow window, salvaged from an old country store, that I found covered in dust and bird poop in the back of a barn. I bought the window for $50 years earlier and now I finally had a place to put it. Measuring five feet tall by twelve feet long it would allow for tremendous views to be seen while “doing the dishes”.
