Every time we turn around something in our world is changing.
As we get older we like changes less and less.
Our youngest daughter Jeanelle her husband David and their 4 kids just bought 25 acres near Livingston, Texas.
They will be putting their house on the market in the next six weeks and moving 1 1/2 hours away from us.
The good news is David will still be working in and around Houston so the kids can always hitch a ride to our house.
This is a dream of there’s to have a big piece of property for the kids to run around and explore. Making trails in the piney woods will be great fun for them. This is great for the dogs and the cows which are both in need of more room.
They have wanted a barndominium for a very long time and this is the chance to get one. Their bid was excepted on the land, the earnest money is paid the survey is happening this week. Hopefully they will do closing in the next 30days.
In case you are wondering what a barndominium is its a metal type building on a slab but the shapes vary and some look just like a house but are built out of metal.
As soon as the closing is completed they will get the well, septic and electricity installed before they head that direction.
They are on the waiting list to build a barndominium it seems there is a 12 week wait for them to start. This involves a deposit to hold it at the current price.
Our daughter suggested we move there. The housing market is very hot right now in our area so its a good time to sell.
We help out with my mother n law who is 92 years old so we can not move away from here full time. We share this responsibility with one of my brother n laws and sister n law. It works out good sharing this responsibility but there are 3 sons and only two sons and their wives are sharing this responsibility.
We have not ruled out building a weekend house I like the houses with lots of tall windows in the woods. I would have great places to photograph and there would be much more wildlife to see. I love winding paths in the woods with tall trees and nature right beside you.
Life is full of changes we learn to adapt, change and move forward.
