Papa's House

This is the house that our great-grandparents, Papa and Memaw, lived in after they were married. It is over 100 years old! Our grandmother and her three sisters were all born in this house and lived there until they married. Our grandmother inherited the house when Papa passed away 15 years ago.

Our grandmother wanted to fix up the old house, so some of our friends, Steven and Daniel Corbett, came down from MD to do the work.One of the first projects was to tear all these tiles from the kitchen ceiling.Next the boys pulled out all the rotten boards and the rafters.......And put up new boards. Mr. Poole and 2 of his sons came to help today alsoLunch time!Here are some of the old boards, bricks, and other things they have pulled out of the house. Tearing down the old walls in the bedroom We are excited about having the house fixed up! We will post more pictures as the work progresses.
