This could well be our next move!

Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to move your home from its current location somewhere else.
In NZ, they do just that, cut it in half and move it!
That of course is a very simplistic explanation, but you get the gist.

Recently, we saw the perfect home for us in an ideal setting, but would need to move it some thirty feet back from the road and into one of the farmers fields.
Friends have suggested we look at self builds after buying land, and that is something we had looked into.
This picture instills in me visions of a work in progress.
We have never been afraid of a bit of DIY, Kitchens and Bathrooms R Us kind of thing, but although I believe we could probably do the bulk of it, I would be afraid that we would run out of money before we could complete it let alone move in.
So for now, we shall continue looking, as we are again today, but who knows, this may be our Plan D!

Another scheduled post as we are away in Wales again Monday 17th July house hunting.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Home is what you make of it…Swans and ducks for neighbours eh? Hope they weren’t into loud parties at night. Not sure how you would curb that one. Splat an oar or two?

  2. That first line and the picture cracked me up. Hoping the house hunting is going well!

  3. If you could find a company/builder that will construct the shell (outside walls, roof, basic floor and inside a few stud walls interior) you could finish the inside yourself as we did when I was in elementary school. (but it was easier to lifting with a teenage brother – Mom just left or sat outside under a tree and read). You’d be “camping out” inside for a bit, but could finish at your own pace – better if you can get them to do all the plumbing and wiring – I’m wary of wiring. It was an adventure, but we had such a little budget.
    Is there any sort of training skill program with a school you could volunteer on as a project house?
    Do hope you can have a nice porch/sheltered sunny spot/shady retreat to enjoy outside during the year.

    • Although we only touched the surface of self builds, costs could have escalated beyond us which out us off. We have been looking for a while now and something has presented itself.

  4. The lines are all marvelous. Very good writing.

  5. Maybe it will work soon 🙂

    Hopefully you will find your own home soon as well. Good luck with the house hunting
