Believe it or not, however downsizing was a good experience for me. When I purchased our first house, I looked at the situation more enjoy a child would rather than an experienced adult. I wanted a large, spacious cabin with vaulted ceilings, lots of extra rooms, walls made absolutely of windows in particular areas, & several floors. How I managed to convince myself buying a cabin enjoy this was fantastic idea as a single person is beyond me. Just trying to keep the locale clean was next to impossible with our job minutes. I was typically behind on dusting & would frequently find areas in our cabin that I had unintentionally neglected for weeks at a time, just festering with dirty stinking dust & grime. The outdoor service was a pain too, just trying to clean & inspect windows, substitute roof shingles, & something as straightforward as mowing the grass, were all time consuming. I moved into a small town cabin & can’t imagine ever going back. My outdoor service disappeared & our indoor cleaning has shrunk dramatically. But perhaps the best change so far is our immense drop in heating & cooling costs. I had no idea how much energy I was wasting trying to keep that big cabin cool with the big ceilings, abundant windows, & needless extra rooms. My electric bill in our town cabin is half as much as the bill at our outdated house. Not only do I have more time when I’m off job to relax & decompress, however I’m also saving hundreds of dollars a year on running the air conditioner & oil furnace. My ductwork is tighter & free of leaks & breaks in the sealing. I can’t be happier with our cabin & the improvement in Heating & Air Conditioning performance.
