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!

Note:
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 which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

  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
