Uncle Allen built his own house, and also the second home they lived in. He never sold the first place, choosing to rent it instead, saying "you never knew what was going to happen in the future, and you just might need a place to come home to". They lived next door to his parents on Milledgeville Road. Years later he built the second house on Wise Drive.
