skoolies are about the individual.
I'm partly doing this quote thing as an experiment to see if I can figure out how to include quotes in my comments...
At this point, even though this house has been in my family for several generations, I'm half ready to get that bus and let him have the house! Or not... assuming he can compromise.
Speaking of which, today I thought of a compromise. I'm sure he still won't like it, but given the fact that I am ready to dive head first whatever, he may concede.
Here's the plan: We'd keep this crappy little house and not be debt free by next year. We will start the renovations by tearing out the existing garage and possibly the breezeway (enclosed porch between the garage and house). Assuming there's no zoning against it, and I don't believe there is (I'll have to find out for sure Tuesday...), build a much taller, longer, wider garage in it's place. Then, once that's done, start looking for the bus of my dreams!
We'd take out around the last 3/4 more or less of the seats, then basically use it like a big metal tent. You know, put our gear in, including canoes and kayaks, and otherwise, don't do much else to it. For now. Do a few trips in it as such. Do a few mods as we go along.
At some point, we'll HAVE to live in it, even if we're really just living in the garage, while the rest of the house is renovated.
Tonight I talked to him about the fact that I will end up having to travel a bit for my new business venture.
We may not go full timers any time soon, but hopefully I will be able to get a bus by the end of this year or the beginning of next year. This gives me a little time to research research research and pick the brains of those who've been there done that.
