Building a Home

Hello Dear Reader,
Grandpa (Edward F.) Carter had accumulated a few hundred dollars from his mining lease at Mercur. He was, therefore, able to buy a lot at 1200 West 5th North in Provo. He had enough too to buy material for a frame shell of a house.

Wes had gained building experience working for Cox and Christiansen Company. With the help of Uncle Bill, his older brother, they were able to finish the house and the family moved into it in August that year. The house still stands at that address. Here is a picture of it taken several years ago.
