I’m thinking of designing an entire storage unit. I have no plans for it yet, but I’m sure I’ll have to at some point. I have always wanted to live in a farmhouse but it’s something that I never thought I could afford.
I used to be the same way. I lived in my parent’s house for six months in a rented apartment. That was the best decision I ever made, because it made me realize how I’d never be able to afford owning a house.
After living in a house for six months, I realize how much easier it would be to live in a house that didn’t have to be paid for at all. You can rent out your entire property for a tiny amount of money per month, and you don’t have to worry about paying the bills if you don’t have to. It was a huge step in the right direction.
I could go on and on about this little home-free-from-debt-if-you-can-take-a-chance idea, but I think it bears repeating. You need to make sure you actually have money in the bank. We all know how expensive it can be to rent a house. Not to mention the emotional and financial toll it takes on a person to move from place to place.
If you’ve got some money in the bank, you can get a few things for that money, because most people arent going to spend it all on a new house. A new house isnt a complete fixer-upper. It’s not the end of the world if you dont have the funds to fix it up right. In fact, if you get your hands on the right person to work on it, a lot of the work could be DIY.
Yes, you can get your hands on some of the best do-it-yourselfers in the world, but you have to start somewhere, because they dont work for free. Some of them do, however, work for free because they are very well paid.
I was talking to my Dad the other day and he said that he has actually been doing some of the DIY projects he used to do for my Mother. He was talking about the time he got up in the middle of the night to make a shower curtain for her bathroom. He had the money saved up and had the materials in his home. He had a few tools, but he was using them for his own purposes and not for those of the house. So the results were great.
This is one of the reasons why I love the house I live in. The whole reason I built it was to create a space where I could do those DIY projects I used to do for my mother. It worked very well and made a lot of sense for what I was doing back then.
My only problem with the shower curtain was that it was attached to the bottom of the toilet and I was constantly getting an elbow in the side of the bowl. This is probably still my favorite part of the house.
That said, I do think that the toilet can be a real time-saver. Especially if you have a huge composting toilet that you can use for the bathroom.
