House1 View from the north west.

This is the home we have lived in for the past 29 years. It was built in 1909 by Moroni Brough. Shortly after we purchased the house we expanded it to the east using salvaged brick, stone and wood from a similar house being demolished a few miles away. The addition was designed by Allen Roberts of Cooper and Roberts and constructed by Craig Paulsen of Paulsen Construction. The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is part of the Spring City Historic District. It has been featured for years on Spring City’s annual Heritage Day Historic Home Tour. The house is situated on a 1.06 acre lot that also features a log granary from 1880, a log artist’s studio from the same time period, a chicken coop, small fiberglass green house, a fenced yard, a horse barn and a steel corral. This lot also features a prime garden plot with soil that has been organically built for the past three decades and a number of fruit trees.
This house has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a half bath with a new laundry, a new 98% efficient gas furnace in a study room, a living room, a dining room, a kitchen with an attched root cellar, many closets and a playroom.
Now that our three daughters have grown and moved away we are looking to down size our home. We will be moving just three blocks away to a bigger lot where we plan to move and restore a 1880’s log house that will be much smaller and more to our needs now that we are just two most of the time.

This 1880’s log cabin sits east of the house and has served as a painting studio since it was moved here from the Strate Family farm west of Sping City in the early 1990’s.

barn
Lee had this horse barn built last year. It sits on the north fence of the lot.
