I wish I knew the history of all the houses and buildings in Burkett. This house belongs to a neighbor. It’s been unoccupied for the last 7 years at least. The house was built in stages and I’m not sure which part was first! I’m thinking there was a tiny house (back section of peaked roof), then the Bus was added along with the smaller peaked roof and the little add-ons on the back. Next maybe was the front part of house, then the carport. Or I could be all wrong. I bet the gingerbread trim on the carport posts were suggested by a “Mrs”. Something to draw one’s eye away from the bus maybe.
There were Burketts living in the house in the early 1900s and it’s still in their possession along with 2 newer homes and quite a bit of pasture acreage across the road from us. They own the cows that I’m always talking about.
Someday, I’ll have to remember to ask about the bus house. I think it’s pretty unusual!
