Selling the house…eventually.

In order to do this, we need to sell our house. Truth be told, we’d be selling our house even if we weren’t planning on RVing full time. Don’t get me wrong, we love our home. It’s big (2500 sq. ft.) with 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms and ridiculous amounts of closet space. It’s NOT a McMansion…it has architectural character and was built when homes didn’t get slapped together in mere weeks. It boasts a huge living room and family room with a big, cozy fireplace, a kitchen full of white cabinets and miles of granite and a wonderfully open floor plan. We have 3.5 beautiful, private, zen-like acres yet we’re in a neighborhood. There are climbing trees, a stream for racing toy boats, fields for running and hills for sledding. Sounds like bliss, right?

Mostly it is. What it also is…is LOADS of work. We spend so much of our time working on the house, the gardens, the lawn that we don’t get time to enjoy it. It’s also WAY more space than we need. The boys share a room, so we have 2 unused bedrooms. We spend all our time in the living room, making the family room a glorified hallway. We have this massive basement that would make an excellent game room. There’s even an attic on the 2nd floor that would be SO cool finished.

It will be hard to leave this house. I’ll cry. When we bought it we swore we’d be forever. Times change. Needs change. Priorities change. We want less stuff. We want more time. More experiences with our kids. And the only way to get that is to move on. Literally and figuratively.
