It’s a year since I moved into my first home, and I still feel a bit like I’m still adjusting to my new surroundings.
For one thing, it’s not as much of a home as I thought it would be.
There’s no TV or internet access in the house, and the main thing I can get is an email with a photo of a person’s dog.
(I’m not kidding.)
There’s also no central kitchen or refrigerator, which is kind of a bummer.
But there’s also plenty of room for all my possessions, and a lot of space for me to make my own meals.
And there’s a lot to do.
There are some neat ideas in the works: A “pile” of bookshelves will house a couple of books, a couple will be my personal library, and another will house my own personal kitchen and fridge.
(There’s also a storage shed that will serve as a makeshift office.)
I’m also hoping to expand the kitchen and add some storage to the garage.
In the meantime, though, the house is still a lot like any other: It’s just a little different.
I still have my old desk and a chair.
I’m going to keep it for now.
There aren’t any big changes to the furniture, though.
It’s still a standard, simple two-story structure, with a big white-and-gray tile roof, a large wood-burning stove, and plenty of storage.
The only change is that it’s going to be my second home, not the first.
That’s because I’ll be moving into a new house, one that’s a little bigger.
That means that I’ll need to buy a whole lot of furniture, as well.
But what will I do with it?
And will my old house still be there when I move out?
I’m glad to report that it seems to be a fairly safe bet.
I can see the house being pretty functional, though I’m a little worried about its stability.
I’ll have a big pile of books in the basement for reference, and my other furniture will probably be stored in a nearby garage.
That said, there’s not much to worry about.
I don’t have to worry much about keeping the house tidy.
I just have to keep the doors and windows locked, and keep the outside windows open.
It also doesn’t have much storage space, so I’m definitely going to have to work hard to get rid of any clutter.
As for the kitchen, I’ll probably have a small pantry, a small sink, and some shelves.
I won’t have a fridge, either, since I’ll still have to buy new ones.
The most important thing is that I get rid in one piece of the house.
There’ll be some other parts of it that I can move around, and they’ll have to be removed.
But my main living space will be the kitchen.
That will be where I’ll keep all my stuff, and where I can keep a couple extra bookshelved on the shelves.
The problem is that, while the kitchen is a nice space, I don “feel” comfortable sitting at it.
My legs are a little too short to move around.
And the chairs are a bit of a pain to move when I’m not eating dinner or working.
So I’m probably going to end up just sticking to the traditional living room and living room chairs.
But it’s hard not to be more comfortable sitting in the kitchen at home.
There is a bit more space in the living room than in the backyard, for example, and it’s a bit harder to move stuff around when you’re in the middle of the day.
But I’m just happy to be able to do my own thing in my house, without having to worry so much about the house moving around.
