And so they were married and moved into the little house and in a couple of years, when times were better, they built the 'second portion of the house and made one at the bedrooms Into a pretty nursery and they lived happily ever after. The end. Starting as three rooms and a bath, today's home eventually becomes five full sized rooms and a pleasant screened-in porch.
