Believe it or not, however downsizing was a fantastic experience for me. When I purchased my first house, I looked at the situation more appreciate a child would rather than an experienced adult. I wanted a large, spacious condo with vaulted ceilings, lots of extra rooms, walls made entirely of windows in particular areas, & more than 2 floors. How I managed to convince myself buying a condo appreciate this was relaxing plan as a single guy is beyond me. Just trying to keep the locale wash was next to impossible with my work fourths. I was constantly behind on dusting & would frequently find areas in my condo that I had unintentionally neglected for months at a time, just festering with dirty smelling dust & grime. The outdoor maintenance was a pain too, just trying to wash & inspect windows, replace roof shingles, & something as straightforward as mowing the lawn, were all time consuming. I moved into a small town condo & can’t imagine ever going back. My outdoor maintenance disappeared & my indoor cleaning has shrunk dramatically. But perhaps the best change so far is my large drop in heating & cooling costs. I had no plan how much energy I was wasting trying to keep that sizable condo cool with the big ceilings, abundant windows, & needless extra rooms. My electric bill in my town condo is half as much as the bill at my old house. Not only do I have more time when I’m off work to relax & decompress, however I’m also saving hundreds of dollars a year on running the a/c & heating system. My air duct is tighter & free of leaks & breaks in the sealing. I can’t be happier with my current lake condo & the improvement in HVAC performance.
