We (the wife and I) bought it back on May 03, 1987 for a grand total of $30,000 and a deposit of $300.00 downpayment. Man, did that seem like a ton of money then and our daughter was 5 years old about to start school. I worked in an office while the wife was a housekeeper at the hospital. Now she is a RN and this will be her 30th year there.
After 20 years this house has completely changed. I have added new living areas, rebuilt every wall or removed them, added door entries and removed all the original windows and doors. Also there is no chimney required anymore as I have updated the heating system, put in a 90 plus water heater and added central air. Completed a new electrical system with a modern kitchen less dishwasher (wife doesn't like them). Bathrooms have been remodeled twice. First time we were so broke that when the woman next door did there bathroom, we recycled her tub replacing the footed tub our house came with that sat on wood blocks due to it not having any feet. Then some years later I gutted the bath again and this time I did it totally right with all new plumbing fixtures and wall and floor coverings. Odd part of all this 20 years later and I'm still doing remodeling projects to this house (property).
