Produce a 'Forever House' Link

There’s something reassuring about the notion of living at the same house for many years, with layers of memories infused into each coat of paint on the walls and each repair made with your own two hands. As we go about nowadays, it is natural for our houses to fall into the background … but since we are thinking about it now, I’m curious: Would you say that you’re living on your “forever house”? Or, with so much mobility in our lives these days, is there anything as a forever house anymore? Is that a pie-in-the-sky dream? From a house where family memories are made to one which supports us as we get older, we will explore the various facets of our relationship with our houses, and why — or why not you might want to stay with one house for the long haul.

The big dream. More than simply owning a house, I feel that a big dream many of us share is to have a house that we feel connected together with, where our families grow and a number of our greatest memories are made. Each of us has our own set of struggles, and owning a house isn’t always a viable option — but the capability to get in touch with your house is always there, no matter where you’re living.

The small fantasies. When I asked you to describe your dream house in detail, what would be on your list? Digging deeper than size and location, what small details make your perfect home? Let yourself imagine for a couple of minutes, and I think you may be amazed at the things that you realize are important to you. Could any of these be integrated into the house you have today?

If these walls could talk … The pen marks on the kitchen wall measuring elevation in years, the specific sound the screen door makes when it seems shut — these are the things which become etched in our memories. Part of the allure of a forever home is its ability to serve as a stable, grounding element from the lives of our kids and ourselves; it is something strong which we could measure ourselves against.

Mining childhood memories. One fantastic thing about owning your own spot for the long haul is your ability to handle more extensive jobs, ridding your house over time to suit you perfectly. If you’re already residing on your forever home, re-creating the sense of a beloved grandparent’s backyard or your parents’ warm, easygoing kitchen might help build a relationship with your favourite areas of the past. Allow the many positive images and memories from your own childhood house to inspire your house today.

Welcoming pets into the household. As an animal person myself, I completely understand the need to have furry members of the family. Working out pet policies together with landlords isn’t always a pleasant affair, moving is stressful for all involved, and also for all those who have larger animals, locating a location can be a real challenge — making a forever home rather attractive for some pet owners.

Expand and revive … or proceed? We require different things of a house depending on our stage in life. A household welcoming and growing new children will need more room. Space needs may diminish again following retirement, and also in our later years, mobility and accessibility are important factors to consider. Therefore, when faced with these changes, do you adjust your house to fit your needs, or do you proceed?

Is it possible to have a forever rental? I’d venture to say yes. After all, I don’t see a great deal of difference between the possible risks that can befall a house you have (fire, flood, foreclosure) versus one you lease. Embrace where you are and give yourself permission to settle in, at precisely the same manner that you would if you lived in a house you owned.
