All You Need Is $1 and a Dream: Before

Who: Jeff W
Where: Springfield, Oreg.

In the summer of 2003, my 7-year-old daughter told my wife: I had a dream last night that God gave us a super house for $1! In the fall of 2004, my sister- in-law took my wife to an antique store Ruthie B's, in a 1928 Bungalow. They found the house was going to be sold for $1 and would have to be moved. I contacted the owner and asked if the house was really $1. Yes, was the reply. I said I would be down with a check. We purchased the house and found a half acre lot 15 blocks away. In spring of 2005, the house was moved.
