We moved to the "country" in 1994. Since that time we (I am blessed to have a handy husband, he did most of this himself - well not the pole buildings) have totally remodeled this old house, added a shop and studio for me, a play house for the girls, a pole shed for my "junk" a pole shed for Al's tractors and tools, a pump house and outhouse. The barn was build after WWII and our neighbor has the same one. They were built at the same time. Our house - part with kitchen - was originally a small 2 room home early 1900's and the front part with second story was built just before WWII and then the gentleman - Mr. Netzinger - went off to the war. His intentions were to brick the whole house, but that never happened. He did return from his service, however, he didn't brick it. Ringle use to have a brick yard and MANY homes in our county - even state - are made of Ringle Brick. Our farm, like so many in Wisconsin, was a small dairy farm. We removed the stancions (spelling?) and put in stalls for horses and goats (now sheep).
Al's building - machine shed - in in the background. The chicken coop has the ladder up against it. We had to take down some branches.
Hope you enjoyed...Blessings from Wisconsin!
