Weegy: in "The Far and the Near" the little house gives the engineer such extraordinary happiness because: The vision of the house does not change despite the changes in his life. "But no matter what peril or tragedy he had known, the vision of the little house and the women waving to him ... had become fixed in the mind of the engineer as something beautiful and enduring, something beyond all change and ruin, and something that would always be the same, no matter what mishap, grief or error might break the iron schedule of his days."
