It just seemed like I was never going to get there when it came to saving for a house. And I went without plenty of cool stuff to keep saving. I saved for the house for what seemed like forever. I came to the realization that I had to consider other options. Even a two-bedroom house that needed work was out of my league. So, I decided that maybe there was another way to approach home ownership. I just wanted to have my own HVAC equipment and be responsible for all the stuff in my house. But having quality heating and cooling equipment was so important. However, I wasn’t willing to completely go broke just so I could own a house that was broken down already. Turns out, the answer for me was a tiny house. The money I saved was enough to buy a few acres and get a small loan to build a tiny home. At first, I wasn’t sure that I could live in such a small space. Yet, the more I researched this idea, the more I fell in love with it. So that’s why I am now. And I have great heating and cooling thanks to a ductless heat pump which provides great quality heating and air. It’s just so amazing to own my own place and be responsible for my own stuff instead of renting. Plus, I live out in the country with fresh air and no neighbors. That sure beats having neighbors on all sides when I was in an apartment.
