One humble house tells its own intriguing history. "Today, big houses surround me, up""and down my street. When I was""built, the Fairchilds were the only""people around for miles and miles." Standing strong and proud, a trusty old farmhouse reflects on its beginnings, remembering the Fairchild family who built it more than two hundred years ago and comparing what life was like then to the bustling world of the Gray family, its present dwellers. With rich historical detail and warm affirmation of both past and present, "When I Was Built" celebrates continuity and change, as it conveys the welcoming spirit that makes a house a much-loved home.
