    Enjoy all of your photos. It is so amazing the way the whole Amish community comes together at such times, supporting everyone in the church district. Love these people.

    Interesting that the Amish build with totally modern materials and techniques but still eschew electricity.

    That will indeed be a well-built and functional house. How wonderful to be capable of building one’s own home!

    The Amish home may be devoid of decorations, and all the “stuff” we English buy, But them have beautiful houses and their furniture is absolutely the most beautiful I’ve seen. My daughter bought a dining set made of Cedar, I think, and it will last for many generations to come. No need to replace it every few years. She bought it from the Millers in Adams County, Ohio.

    I’m glad you remember the house your grandfather built. That was in a time when one took care of their own needs. He also cut down the trees from his own woodlot to produce the lumber for the house. Robert helped in this work With some lumber left over he and Robert produced many household items.. Mom
