Help this old confused woman~~~PLEASE
Most of you know my situation....DH passed, have a large lot, sold this house, no place to call "home" and I need to do something~~
I was thinking I would build (and Summerfield has drawn a great plan), but this morning I got a call from a gentleman who also lives in the housing development and he put some pointed questions to me:
Do I really want a 1600 SF house at my age? Why don't I build a 2 bedroom/2bath duplex? Do I need that 3rd bedroom? Do I need a dining room? What are my NEEDS vs. wants at 70 years old? etc.... So now I am in such a state of confusion because IF I build, I need to go on with it while the builder is making a slot for me. I can't front the cost of the entire unit, and know of no one who wants to build the other half....they can not be rented out in that HOA.
I guess I am just venting and wishing some magic answer would come to me. There is absolutely nothing to rent and although a friend has offered me to stay with her, I want my own space. There is nothing in that little town that doesn't have some steps and my arthritis prevents me from doing steps etc. I am still upset that the owner sold that condo out from under me when I asked for a mold inspection.
So I am turning to the wise counsel of this group of friends who have been so supportive through this....THANKS to everyone who has stuck with me at this most trying time of my life~~
