Goodbye, big house
Closing is set, and sooner than expected, on my former house. I’m still trying to figure out what to sell, what to give away, and what to store of the stuff from that house, but in less than two weeks the house itself will be gone. I’ll miss being a landowner. I’ll miss the woods behind the house. But the house I won’t miss.
I’m looking forward to my little cabin! There are several pieces of land I want to look at. One thing I’ve become more aware of… it costs money to have a good foundation. Lots of money. But I’m looking forward to finding that piece of land and getting the foundation laid. And part of me doesn’t want to mar the land with a new foundation. I’d like things to be just like they’ve been, but with my house on a corner, hidden in the trees. Maybe I’ll buy. Maybe I’ll build. I’m looking forward to the next step of my life, knowing that the big house will no longer be in the way of the little house to come!
