Would You Look At This!

See this house? This old farmhouse with shiplap walls and original wood floors? 

It reminds me so much of Freeman House. And... it's mine if I want it. A nice lady wants to give me this house. For free. All I have to do is hire someone to move it 3 hours east, and then come up with a suitcase full of cash to pay them.

Insert hopeful/dare-I-dream/get real/never-gonna-happen/can you believe this?/this-stuff- only-yet-doesn't-happen-to-me sentiments here...

Hmmmm... It does sound a little familiar. Friends of ours gave their home away for $1. It moved three or four miles down the road for a cost of $24,000. That was over a dozen years ago in my corner.

I'm still hopeful! :)

What a charming house! I have the feeling that a 3-hr-down-the-road move would be big $$$ tho...

Linda Z said...

Crazy! Can you get a loan to move a house?

Susan said...

It IS really expensive to move houses, and this one looks like it might not survive a 3 hr trip. (which would probable take about a week and much $$$$$$ in labor.) What a shame!

shoegirl said...

Do. It. I'll donate to the moving fund! :-)

You will never know unless you try! Anything is possible! Dream upon a star and land on the moon!

It looks like a real Texas farmhouse! Wonder if it might qualify for some historic preservation funds?

oh that would be so cool...also Debbie told me to stop by and give you a hard time for not showing up for day 2

Stupid question...can it be taken apart and moved in sections and reassembled?

betty r said...

Oh I do love old homes..so much character! But I can only imagine the cost of moving the house..but if you are meant to have it who knows, right?

I don't know if I am happy for you or scared to death.

I am THRILLED to find out that YOU ARE BACK!
I just found this out last evening. I'm so excited to read all that you are doing.

Moving a house is a big endeavor. But if anyone can aspire to do it and get it done-- it would be you.

I say, why not?

At this time it appears like Expression Engine is the best blogging platform out there
right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this website. It's simple,
yet effective. A lot of times it's challenging to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say that you've done a great job with this.
In addition, the blog loads very fast for me on Chrome.
Superb Blog!
