Restoring David Burns' House

$65 of $15k goal

Judith Elaine McKee Burns  CULVER, IN

Can you please help me in any small way.... the minum is $5 and fees are deducted on my end.

David started bricking in 1959-1961 and stopped when 1st wife died...

His famous words    since 1972  I'll finish in the fall then  when fall approached it was I'll finish it in the spring... neither came and he died on 23 August 1990... 

Now I am left with the restoring of the house of things done to it and not done to it over the years the house is 114+ years old and goes back to the Hawk family, then Hawkins and to the Burns family in which name its been since March 9th 1944
 



 But  just recently I found by a newspaper quip in the local paper  dated inOct 1940 that the family moved into the house  the 1st week of October 1940 - so they may have just  been renting - to buy or with the option to buy that house.

Pleas help my make my dreams and hopes come true... I want to restore it fully  and  hope also to  move back into it one day before I die....

Humor an aging old woman in her dreams....

You can follow the progres of the adventure here

Thank you.

Borrowed this from another page - "Faith is a journey, not a destination. Be not afraid to take the path less traveled." This in way says it all its faith in that the old house can be restored... tho there is fear and doubt along the way I will not give in hopefully till the day I die.... whether anyone is with me and supports me in my journey.... https://www.facebook.com/419SouthMainStreetCulverMarshallIndiana/

Just found a saying that fits.... Dream the impossible and imagine the finished look... yes beginning to look likes its going to be impossible for while but I wont give up my dream I cant I maybe totally foolish and stupid to believe it can be done but it is my house I love it and I want it restored... I want to live in it again one day....

Went up today and got the front sidewalk & steps cleaned off....

Oh for my house... still not sure what will occur this year with friend... it would be so nice to be much closer to medical facilities we use... not sure why I am so bent on restoring it... why I want to move back into Culver but I do I guess I am just foolish and qrazy... but I do know everything is possible when you trust in the Lord I keep praying even tho I know it is a selfhish dream...

I wish it were more, I think it is a disgrace that a town would want to tear down the oldest house in the area. Shameful!
