When my parents passed away, it was a hard time for me.
Naturally, my eldest brother inherited their main house, but I at least inherited the family cabin.
I ended up moving into the cabin which was about 30 minutes away from a town where I could do all my grocery shopping and pick up vital supplies. I even worked in the town for a long while until I was able to get a job working from home. I enjoyed living in the cabin, it brought back my memories of relaxing with my parents when they were still around and I felt like they came to visit me from time to time even though some people think that’s nuts. I did a little bit of work to the cabin over the years. I installed a solar panel system on my own and then eventually, I installed my own ductless mini split system with a separate zone in each room including all the bedrooms. There are 4 bedrooms and I just figured I would keep those other rooms as guest rooms. Then eventually, I made a home gym in one of the rooms. I love working out while cranking the AC system in that room. I have had numerous buddies come out and I even had a huge party once where my friends invited other friends. This is actually were I met my wife at my own place because she heard of this amazing party going on. We had a wonderful time and started dating. She eventually moved in with me and we got married. She wanted a family, but I said I would have to sell the cabin because I wasn’t sure if it was a good place to raise children, but she said it was the perfect place!
