Through our travels, we come across a lot of decaying places that have so much potential where tender loving care and some renovations would do the trick. Now we definitely are not the type of people to even know where to start when it comes to fixing up an abandoned house, but who says we can’t dream! So this house in the middle of a rural Texas field is one of those houses that we wish we could fix up. It’s the wide open land…it’s the simplicity of the architecture…it’s the isolated, middle of an island feel of this home that really speaks to us.
