Nussmeier family home




Happy Birthday to Bob!  

This is Bob's family home in Hope, Indiana.   His wife, Katie asked me to do this sketch as a surprise for his 60th birthday!  

This classic colonial home was built in 1833 and purchased by Bob's grandfather in 1936, and after passing through several generations it remains in the family still today.  It was made from bricks that were baked in the kiln on the property to form exterior walls, 15 inches thick, and it was one of the first homes in Bartholomew County to have electricity and modern plumbing.  Bob and his sister, Nancy (the current owner) fondly remember climbing the maple tree in the circular drive when they were kids!
