@catwoman500

@LydiaN586309  my washer/dryer is in the basement as well.  I, however, have rented for the past 26 years so won't be moving anything.  I take it very carefully when I am going up and down the stairs.  I'm afraid of falling more than anything.  Luckily, I don't have to do too many loads of wash each week.  More bath towels and bed sheets,  Maybe we should just have someone else do the laundry.

@catwoman500 

 

It’s not a mansion , just an oddly built old post and beam house 1880-ish, with a ballon framed first floor 1920?

 

Good farming year, brought electricity and indoor plumbing with the first floor addition, and a root cellar for heating.

 

We bought it for porch, closets, and bathroom being in the house, versus tacked on.🤣 or afterthought. And a big kitchen with dishwasher and w/d hookup.

 

Was going to say the barn attached but, sills were rotted so, that became a new 2 1/2 car attached garage, we get SNOW🤣.

 

Frankly if I had my druthers it would be 1000 ft. Square apartment, all on one floor. Less crap. Problem with tiny homes are their price is $80K, self built is $50K ,Know people who have done it, land is extra.😇

 

Time to play, rains coming.

Froze

 

 

 

And yes, after long days/nights, I'd still like to swing these hunks of glass , plastic and silicon against the nearest wall Come on retirement!

Hi there, Peeps!

Another day in the 90's for us. Rain is due tonight maybe.

@LydiaN586309 ...Oh, yes, same here with the washer and dryer. Stepson the contractor is "supposedly" drawing up plans for some kind of addition to the house because like you, I have no room to put the washer and dryer on the first floor. Those basement steps are killers for me. Of course he was here in April to see what could be done and the only thing I've heard since then is, "Sorry, you must be running out of patience."

All I ask is just send me a crumb or something...a sketch, an idea, a ballpark figure, SOMETHING! Acck!

No tiny house for me although I do think they are so darn cute, and what they can do with the insides is amazing. Right now I could fill one of them with my doll collection alone! LOL.

 

Trying not to get frustrated while waiting for some/any news about the renovation, so I think instead of more coffee, I'll have some lemonade!

You all stay well!

 

Anyone for lemonade?Anyone for lemonade?

Where is that tiny house located? Wonder what it looks like inside. Sure would be a lot less area to clean. 🙂

Good morning, Everybody!

@wvgirlforever, you have some fine looking grandsons.  How lucky and blessed you are! 

 

@DaveMcK, congrats on your move. Your new digs look really nice.  One thing I noticed is that the laundry area is on the same floor as your living space.  I've been thinking about bringing my washer and dryer upstairs from the basement, but I have no idea where I would put them.  My hips, knees, and stairs are not getting along.  Smile.

 

@Frozenoem, I sometimes think my three bedroom ranch is a lotta space to contend with what with the yardwork and repairs.  But five bedrooms sounds like a mini-mansion by comparison.  But there'll be no tiny house for me.

Well, my birds are calling me.  All of the feeders are empty save for the giant worm cake on the patio.  I have two blue jays, a cardinal, a few starlings, and one pesky squirrel taking turns pecking and clawing at that one feeding station.  So after breakfast and coffee, I'm gonna head outside.  Got one birdbath and seven bird feeding stations to fill.

 

Temp is comfortable 79 degrees right now. It's been threatening rain off and on this morning.  But not a drop yet. Anyway, yesterday's torrential downpour was more than enough. 

 

P. S. ~ @DaveMcK, we know you've got a lot to do with the move and getting set-up and all.  So just know although you will be missed, we will hold down the Our Front Porch 'til you get back!

Lydia

@DaveMcK looks like a nice building.  I have been looking at senior apartment buildings but because I still work and also draw social security I have too much income.  Is this a place you're buying as opposed to renting?  It has been tough trying to figure everything out at this later stage of life.  What state is this where the building is located?

@DaveMcK 

 

Looks good, actually have been dreaming of downsizing to condo or retirement home.

 

Gets old mowing, snowblowing, hauling firewood (can’t forget cutting, splitting, stacking and restacking).

 

Almost at stage of wanting a constant temperature at the flip of a switch.

 

3 Floors and 5 bedrooms for one person Is a little much. Have tossed and sold 1000 ft, sq of crap, only 3000 ft. Sq left to go.

And yes, after long days/nights, I'd still like to swing these hunks of glass , plastic and silicon against the nearest wall Come on retirement!

@Frozenoem they're just beige (in my son's house with the picture of the boys).  In my own living room, I have a very light gray that actually looks good with everything.  Kind of a calming color as well. 😎
