I am in love. I kid you not. Thanks to Twitter I stumbled upon an affordable green house from Modern Green Kits. It’s a pre-fab, but less expensive and larger then so many I have seen before. I was actually getting depressed looking at various designs, because they were all super expensive.
For so many reason, I really never wanted to purchase a home again. I won’t go into that, if you want to read some of the reasons, they are covered in this post “Why I am Never Going to Own a Home Again” by James Altucher.
My DH and I have talked about it, and several variables have to be met before we even consider buying a house. And when I say buying, I mean no mortgage. I basically
hate dislike severely how the entire housing ball of wax works; mortgage bankers, realtors, appraisers, tax deductions,closing costs….too negative—“snap back” – I tell myself. The location for our simple home has to favor low taxes, both for businesses and personal, it has to liberal laws, has to be near decent medical centers, somewhat near a decent airport, and it has to have good weather. I also wanted a stream, or a lake, and a woods, and some hills, driving distance to a coast, but I can get carried away sometimes.
This is just the tiniest step toward where we think we want to be. Talking about it. Researching it, and thinking about another major shift in life-style. I like this direction. It gives me hope that real change is possible.
Tip: Keep an open mind when discussing new ideas. Nothing is set in stone in the early stages of change so everything, no matter how crazy it sounds, has merit.
