Dad in front of the house he grew up in . This is a frame I built using some siding taken from the house my dad was raised in. It is located in Popular Dell, northern Saskatchewan. They were a family of nine, but seeing as they lived only a mile from the school, the teacher boarded with them as well. Cozy.
I especially like the moss that is attached to the lower left hand corner. They would have lived there late 1920 into 1930”s. There was a small kitchen attached to the side at one time.

I think making something special out of wood that has memories is the best form of recycling. I had some similar projects.

What a treasure! Surely this will become a family heirloom.

Beautiful memory, beautiful way to preserve memory on this house and one life. ’’Untouched’’ board frame looks great!

Man, I really dig stories like this! Thanks for posting this! I love the frame, the history and I’m envious of the wood. I’d love to have some of that.

Thanks fellows. Dad has been gone six years now, but I think of him every time I go into the shop. We used to have coffee together every morning. Here is a poem I wrote in his honor.

Well, It seems that we have a lot of the same faults.

I do like the poem, the frame, and the old farm pictures too!
The link will partly explain it.
Just another old putterer too!
