The first house my folks bought after my dad came home from World War II was your ordinary 2 bedroom home, in the city on 4 lots. Then in 1952 we moved out into the country onto 10 acres.  The house was an old barn like house but mom always had ruffled curtains & made it as comfortable as possible.  We lived in that for several years while they built a beautiful new 3 bedroom rambler on the front portion of the property.
