Come Wednesday there will be a bid process that will determine where my husband will have his first real position. The two possibilities are a town that's a good 7 hour drive away in another province or a town 30 minutes away that's actually where we would want to build in a few years.
If he gets the neaby town we've decided we'll look at buying a duplex there. Prices are low and we could buy one, live in it, rent the apartment and possibly hold on to our current property and rent it as well. We'd still be building off grid in a few years, we just wouldn't have to try to make our tiny house work for us in the meantime.
So if my posts are short, dull and uninspiring for the next few days, it's because I'm preoccupied. I'm imagining a bigger house by fall, looking at all the real estate websites and hoping, hoping, hoping.
