Still moving in and loving our house

Filed under: Uncategorized — by accessahut @ 12:05 pm

Despite all the heartache and financial woes getting to this point, we are in the house. And we are thrilled. The short walk to the bathroom is doable. The short walk to the kitchen means we actually get up to get something to drink, or that making tea in the morning just seems to be doable. Here are some of the keys so far:

  • Light. We did put in that huge sliding glass door patio, and we can see out to what will (soon!) be a garden. and that makes a difference in the way the house feels.
  • Off-house storage. We have a storage room (about 16 feet by 6 feet) where we can keep stuff that is not absolutely vital to live in the house. I am the only one who can move about right now, but we put things at the side of the house to go in storage and a list of what needs to come in.

  • Paring down as a way of life. We are still paring down, with a “free” box out in front that we try to keep stocked with the things we really don’t need. And we are not bringing things into the house. The whole flow is out, not in.
