Most of all? That it's mine; I gutted the whole place, switched out all of the plumbing and electric, Insulated, sheetrock and spackle, doors and windows, trim work, painting, flooring, roofing, and masonry. My personality is in my house. Built in 1864. French Mansard style.
Whoa, man, you're pretty handy. At least for a 154 year old. I guess people do live longer over there.
I didn't build it; I remodeled it. It's got character.
As I've lived in this house close to a year now, it just has that feeling that it's my home. Paid for and mine to do with as I want. I live alone and can do as I want, when I want. Loved this house the first time I walked into it. It just felt like home. Peaceful and quiet!
We've lived in the same house for the last 25 years which is much longer than I have lived in any other place during my whole life. We've made many changes to it over the years and it just feels like an old friend. :)
It's just a smallish town home/condo, but it suits us perfectly. We can do as we please from the walls in, and the association is responsible for the roof and exterior .... a good arrangement at my age.
It's paid for, I've decorated it to my taste and it's very comfortable.... love my home very much.
The family and friends who gather around my dining room table to discuss the day's happenings, politics, news and whatever else they are thinking about. Having others comfortable in my home makes it my home.
