Jerry Built a House

ACT IV, SCENE I

Jerry Built a House

He built the home because he had to. He built it with his own hands.

In the heart of the city of Nashville, in a public woodland, Jerry built a home for his beloved Eva.

He was without a home. He was on the streets. Wandering place to place. He worked for a while as a Contributor newspaper vendor so he could try to rent a home. But circumstances prevented him continuing. He is technically disabled now and unable to work. He was “squatting” in a wooded area of the city and he decided why not build his own house?

First he built a little cabin, which is now a guest house–though he rarely has a guest. Then he built a workshop.

He built an outdoor shower, a dog pen for his dog Sheba, a garden, and most recently the “main house.”
