Family and home

Making Room

The story of John William Smith who built himself a house where he could watch the sun set. This is all I need, he thought. But then he got lonely, so he married Annie McFarlane. As the years passed and at Annie's request, he built additions onto the house - a pantry, a kitchen, and extra bedrooms for their growing family.

It's a very nice, heart-warming story about families and togetherness. Unfortunately, it's marred by a poor final sentence, which is a bit too long. Just one more sentence would have been perfect - this is all we need.
