Deb Fix - 1985

John Fix and the baby Ivan stand in the living room of their house when it was being redone. The studs in the walls can been seen before drywall was added, and insulation is visible in the ceiling. A television and electronic equipment is behind Jon, and drying laundry can be seen through the door on the right.

Title by cataloger. Notes by contributor, "My parents bought our house in 1980, and had been living in the house for 5 years while it was under construction. The house was built in the 1800s and had to be completely gutted and rebuilt. The house didn't have any wiring, and they used a kerosene heater."
