Retired with a Big Old House.
(Milbank, South Dakota)
Well .. here goes. My wife and I are retired... she is 67 .. I am 71. We live in retirement friendly South Dakota. Our kids are grown and live a couple of hours away.
This isn't a problem.. yet... however.. as we age.. we are in good health... the 4 acres we live on ... and mow.. will most likely become too much to handle.
Should we pull up .. sell and move to a smaller home or apt. or should we stay because it's paid for.. we have just our monthly bills.. live here forever or until we just can't handle all the mowing and tree work (lots of trees..about 20 we mow around).
We both Love our old 2 story.. well maintained home. At this stage of our lives it doesn't make sense to add bed and bath rooms on ground level so we have stairs to climb whenever we go to the bathroom.
Any suggestions or ideas will be eagerly welcomed. Thank you....
