Ten years ago today we moved into our "new" house in Coweta County Georgia. It is hard to believe that a decade has already passed since we relocated to the Newnan area.
When we bought the house, we had a lot of "must-haves" on our list of things that we thought that we really needed in a home. Things like a basement that was stubbed for a bath so that we could expand our living space.
Of course, ten years later, the basement project still awaits initiation. Instead of being finished, the basement is now a repository for all sorts of items that I have collected over the years. Things like real estate office furniture as we continued to downsize and obsolete technology that I just can't bear to discard.
The point is, there are a lot of features that we believe that we "need" when we are buying something that are actually "wants."
And you don't really know the difference until some time later.
After ten years, we are still very satisfied with our house. Yes, we would make a few changes if we were given the opportunity, but at some point our house ceased to be a product.
Now, it is simply "home!"
