Home ownership

Posted: July 13, 2009 in General

As I continue to work on a variety of projects around the house (I cut down the butchers block last weekend, and this weekend I bought and cut the profile of the baseboard), I realized that we’re nearing the four year mark in our house (not that it was a shock). With average home ownership being six or seven years, we are past that half-way point. Even though we’ve been living in the house for almost four years, it still feels relatively new, like we’ve just begun here. Of course, maybe part of that is that we have so many plans for the house, and our plans extend out five or ten years in that regard*.

*It may be ironic that the only reason we have so many plans for the house is because we love it so much. You might think that we want to change things because we’re unsatisfied and trying to make it better. I think if we didn’t love the house, we’d have no interest in investing time and energy trying to make it better.
