Even though many of us have been "slowed down" by the recent economy we still are staying true to our objective of building our Nirvana in the mountains (or plains or by a stream or whatever).
I'm still planning to try to sell my current house at the end of 2009, make the best deal I can, fill in the shortfall with savings and loans and charge on.
So now I have a new quandary. Where do we go once we have sold our current house and before the new home is built? I'm sure many of you who have gone before us freshmen have had similar problems and being you are currently living in your dream homes you have somehow overcome. My son and daughter-in-law keep telling us not to worry about it as we are welcome to move in with them during construction. At first that sounds like a way to handle the situation until one realizes that first we still need to earn a living and they don't live anywhere near to where we live now. Second, It's going to take about a year for the new house to be in move in condition. I know in my heart of hearts that this would put a strain on our relationship and that's the last thing I want to do.
The only solution that comes to mind and it's not a very good one, is to rent a small furnished apartment close to where the log home is to be built. The reason I don't like this idea is that it will (once again) deplete our cash position.
So that's my question to those of you who have gone before us. How did you do it? How did you survive it all?
