Dream Garage or Apartment
The building has “FLEA” painted on it in red. After the man who built the garage and apartment building has passed. His children keep the apartment building for years. They children begin to move away from the community because there is no work. They choose to sell the property. The building sells to a person who for a while has a Flea Market in the building because it is close to a main road. The time comes when the building is too drafty. It needs too many repairs and is left vacant. While the original builder was alive it was kept in good repairs, but once the person who built it with love no longer owned it. The building quickly ages. And there it stands along that busy road greeting each person who travels by.
A dream materialized, lived, and successfully fulfilled.
Dream of a Chicken House
I ruled out school house because if it was a school house I believe the community would have marked it a school house. If it was a building of importance in the community, it would have been marked. Unless, it is on private property and the person does not want it marked.
This area is known for its chicken houses. Is this by any chance an early chicken house? The windows are built high enough, but there are no window covering. Perhaps those were removed. I look at the building and think there is so much potential in that building. Although, if it was used as a chicken house that would explain why it has not been used in some other capacity.
The old women in the shoe, who had so many children she did not know what to do. It would have been a great place to raise children or have a school. It has no chimney’s so it would take loads of money to make it realize it’s potential.
This dream I feel is one that was not successful. I feel the building was well built, made to last and whatever its purpose was, the dream was not fulfilled or the building outlasted the dream.
Dream of Water
I have made this a well in my mind. It is a hand dug well. Over time it is used as a watering hole for animals and because the animals spent so much time near the well they built shelter over it. A tree seeking water grew beside the well and has cramped the style of the shelter.
This structure I feel served its purpose well and because of love has been preserved for its beautiful character.
Dream Home and Garage
The rock work on this home and garage is beautiful. It is a small house and only a one car garage. It is a detached garage and too small for most vehicles of this day.
When I look at this home I see lots of love. Someone dreamed of a beautiful home. I am going to say they did the work themselves. They built the house first and then over time built the garage. They probably saved and planned for many years. They drew up their own house plans. On those dreary, rainy days of winter they would get them out and dream over them. They skipped their vacations every other year to save up for the completion of this dream. They built the home in their 50’s looking forward to their retirement years. They saw their dream fulfilled and had many happy years in the home. When they passed on their children inherited and because their families were too large they rented out the house. Because they were a part of the dream they have taken care of the house.
Time has robbed them of some of the garage and house, but they are still fighting for that dream.
