21 Aircraft Avenue, Layton Utah, 1982-1987

Aunt Carol, and the current homeowner
When I was in Utah a couple of weeks ago, we went to see the old house where Wayne and I had lived in Layton.  Wayne's grandparents, Earl and Olive Nunn Wixom lived right across the street from us, in a very similar house.

Our little house was 685 sq. ft. upstairs, plus a full unfinished basement, plus a garage that was attached, but there was no doorway in between.

While we were taking pictures of the front of the house, the homeowner came out and talked to us, and was so nice to invite us in for a tour.

The current homeowners have changed it quite a bit.  They have added pop out bay windows in both of the front rooms.  They have changed the garage to a family room which is accessible from the house.

They ripped out the upstairs bathroom and changed my little boys' room into a big bathroom, and added an addition onto the back of the house.

We bought this house in 1982 for $35,000.  It had been built in 1942, and was 40 years old at the time.  We put in a new bathroom, new roof, new furnace, new flooring, new electricity, and didn't make a penny when we sold the house for $35,000 in 1987.  The current owner said she bought it for $41,000 in 1991.
