My spouse and I came to love the outdated home that she had inherited from her aunt. It took a lot of hard work, long hours and more just to restore that house to the way I remembered it being! We had new steps put into the stairway to the upstairs, and the fireplace had been redone as well, now working flawlessly without pouring smoke into the house. Our kids grew to love the cabin as well, just as I had as a kid. Finally, when it came time to retire, the wife and I no longer wanted to stay in a big old cabin any longer. Since the kids had long since grown up, just the two of us didn’t have any need for a four bedroom house! The two of us wanted to downsize to something a bit more appropriate. Our oldest child wanted to buy the house, so we got to talking to him and asked if his siblings had any qualms. Our boy wanted to know what the two of us were going to do, so my wife told him the two of us were moving to a smaller cabin. I don’t believe any of them expected any other answer to that question! We made a lot of memories sitting in front of that grand fireplace, playing games with the kids and much more. We had also installed a central Heating and Air Conditioning system years ago, and had an air purification system installed as well! That was mostly for when the youngest showed signs of asthma and extreme pollen irritations. There was no way the two of us were going to walk away from the current home now without having something just as good – if not smaller – waiting for us! Her aunt inherited that cabin just the same way my she did, so my wife and I enjoyed that cabin, as much as our children did. Now that my wife plus myself are ready to retire, we wanted to spend our time snuggled by the fireplace plus relaxing!
