Through speaking with neighbors and previous owners, I've learned that an older school teacher lived by herself in our old house decades ago. Though I don't know any details about her, I envision a late-middle-aged English teacher, widowed, trying to manage a home by herself.
I'm quite sure that the prospect of regular maintenance to the wooden siding, windows, and trim work on a 2.5 story home was daunting for someone completely dependent on paid labor for such projects.… Continue
