So Nicole did this.
My first thought was, good, they’re getting a good start. But then as I read, I thought, gee, what a bitch Nicole is.
I have no idea whose house is in the second photo, but the one in the first photo does not belong to Jacob and Faith. They couldn’t buy a house if they wanted to. You have to have some money to do that.
That house belongs to Debra Whitehouse.
Here are some photos of that house on the day when they bought it.
So there you have it. A smallish, shotgun style, New England house.
Here’s the back yard the second summer after it was purchased.
But what does it look like now?
And how long has Debra lived there, to accomplish that transformation?
Try three and one-half years.
Three and a half years to do all that. Actually, less time than that. They had the fence up the first summer. Her gardening wins prizes.
Put this in contrast to some other folks who bought a piece of land about the same time. These folks.
And where are they now?
This. This is as good as they could do after three and a half years. They “bought” a garden shed, and after it was repossessed they threw together the shitshack. Then when forced by the court to do something better, they bought another garden shed. That was trashed in two years, so now they’ve “bought” yet another one.
The land is just like it was when they got it except for the addition of a lot of human excrement and no improvements of any sort. The pond is dreadful.
Nicole just wishes she could do what Deb has done.
Here’s the holidays for you, at Deb’s. She bought a house and made it a home.
