Home ownership is not for everyone.

This. I don’t want to deal with the home ownership stuff. I like to do whatever, whenever I want to do it. If I won the lottery, and bought a house (which I’d prob do) I’d hire people to maintain. I’m a touch more than half serious in the following, unless it’s my job: If it’s worth doing, it’s worth paying someone else to do it.

Yeah, obviously with where I work, I have access to all the know how and products I could want…sometime it is a bad thing.

When I got divorced, I lived in an apartment for a year. I enjoyed it, I found myself doing a lot of stuff I used to do before home ownership that I liked doing (ie reading, video games, the gym, etc). But, my one passion is wood working and I needed a shop to do it in so I needed a house. I also enjoy home remodeling so I wanted a fixer upper. I have paid for some things to be done for me (landscaping, my shop because I didn’t have time, windows and carpeting). It is pretty sweet to go to work for the day and come home and it is all done!
