Living in the same house for 12 years, especially through the chaos of the last three years, has been a major stabilizing force for my kiddos (and for all of us really.)
The image below is a survey we got a few years ago. We dream of some day tearing the old (leaded!) house down and building three tiny super-efficient, healthy, off-grid, paint free micro-houses here so we can age in place with our kiddos (for as long as they need our support.) We also hope to integrate a performance stage into the “compound” so the kids will always have a place to make music!
