Construction of our house

We had a three year plan for developing the ranch.  It started out with building a barn and bunkhouse, followed by our permanent house.  That was to be followed by adding livestock.  When Conrad had a serious accident on a horse in 2008, we changed our plan and leased the pasture to Carl Seal for his cattle.

We tried to build the house using local talent and for the most part were successful.  We did have to get some suppliers in Dallas, Amarillo Lubbock and Wichita Falls.  The architect was Tom Wilson of Houston.

The following pictures give a brief history of the barn and house construction.
