We were nestled in a little 900 sq ft log cabin .Believing it was our forever home .Little did we realize that was about to change .When my father n law fell sick ,we began to look at life through a different windshield.. We decided to search for a home that would allow us to put retirement closer and be able to travel and live life tot he fullest (lot earlier than expected) With my hubby the handyman and knowing we could see potential in things we didn’t seem to worried that we could do this.
Location was lay out halfway between 2 towns,, it offered privacy. It was empty for several years. On a Sunday after church we drove by it ,looked at it on-line. But I was hesitant about the 2600 sq ft home .Especially when we downsized.
The unmanicured lawn ,with it being a concrete sound silo ,we could see potential. It once had circular driveway held a large beautiful pine tree .Property was so unique & needed love & lot of work .The property offered a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle in life. In 2017 we were blessed with opportunity to own this home. We had one week to make it livable and then move in .So we put in long hours ,family and friends lend a hand.
As my father n law continue to decline in health, our daughters wedding was approaching, our son was graduating soon & off to college somehow it changed me in more ways than one. Our nest became a place where we could come together ,work and a much need detraction we needed .Our home was what most wouldn’t consider this as a dream home or even give it a 2nd look. It wasn’t on the beach or a lake home or nestled in the mountains .It was simple home life ourselves. Our goal was to have a home where family and friends can gather & enjoy our Sunday meals , a place where you feel at home. We began to untangle the mess one day at a time. We had fallen in love with this unique concrete house with challenging angles it offered. This is where we belonged.
We had been given an out from this crazy ,busy world we live in .We have been blessed with second chance .We have slowed down,count our happies. Enjoy listening to the cows ,the roosters and the sunsets & sunrises are breathtaking. The simple things in life. We have been mapping out places to visit We are empty nesters and living life to the fullest!
