Re: “The allure of an all-steel home

I grew in the house on Perkins Rd in Durham, and have the fondest memories of it. My sister would chase me down the hall, and when I'd run in my room, she would hit the door at a full run, and Daddy would have to put it back on the track. Mom would wash down the walls twice a year, inside, and we would see them turn gray again, lightening from the removal of stains from tobacco and oil heat. Daddy turned the garage into a rec/playroom, added an office, large den and eating area and another bath. My room had a built in desk and closets, and I remember doing math problems with a pencil on the desk, easily washing them away with water when I finished. I remember how the house rumbled once, when lightning hit on or near the house, causing it to reverberate all over. I loved that house- Mom and Daddy made it special, and remembering it gives me that warm, safe feeling from my childhood.
