We raised our family in a one bathroom home and it worked out just fine. We
now have a lavish 1.5 bathroom home which feels luxurious. And the biggest plus about our current home is a humongous backyard where we’ve thrown one wedding and could accomodate at least four Tiny Houses – or six if we were willing to give up more green space.
And this brings me to my Tiny House Dreams. Retirement is closer than it used to be and so I find myself pondering how I might like to live post-professional ministry. At this point, my dreams involve:
- Walkability and/or public transportation. (I do not plan driving past my 80th birthday – which is a wildly radical thing to say considering I’ve not imagined I could live that long until recently.)
- High coziness quotient. Comfy space.
- Super efficient. Less furniture and more built in cabinets/book shelves.
- A place for guests/potential grandchildren and their parents. And dog(s).
I have no idea where this dream life might happen geographically. But this is what I ponder and it’s really fun.
Where and how will you live in – say – ten years? What’s your dream?
