We designed our retirement home from scratch. 2400 sq ft with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. All bedrooms are oversized and have walk in closets. Walk in 8x8 pantry with adjustable shelves from floor to ceiling. Ranch, all doors are 36 inch wide. Garage is oversized with 10 foot doors, can easily park two long bed crew cab Super Duty in it and still have room to process meat. Two separate storage sheds, 8x16 each and a detached 1,000 sq ft workshop with a 12 wide garage door.
Our previous house was 4500 sq ft and just way to much wasted space for 2 people
Had the house built in the middle of our 42 acres. Back porch is 12x40 feet and covered and faces our lake. We walk 150 yards to our deer stand.


My biggest fear is when I die my wife will sell my guns for what I told her they cost.

i want to sell mine, bought it for 120,000 in 05 appraised at 280,000 now, but holding off as this area might get zoned for commercial and my back yard has 200ft of footage on the main thorough through behind my house.If that happens property value will go up. want a place out of town on about 10 acres.

1750 sq ft with an oversized garage.


If we live long enough, we all have regrets...and the regrets that nag at us the most are the ones in which we know we had a choice.

We built a simple 1600 sq. foot ranch in 2011 and we love it! It’s 1500 feet off the road surrounded by woods. Three bedroom, two bath over full basement. 24 X 14 dormer porch on the front. Nice attached two car garage. Open concept being that the living room, dining room and kitchen are all one room. The two kids bedrooms upstairs are smaller being they spend so little time in them. Nice closets though and I have a nice closet and wife has a nice walk in closet.
One boy is in the Army, one has moved into a bedroom in the basement and two boys are still upstairs.
I spent years working on everyone else’s house as a contractor and wanted something easy to maintain and take care of with a manageable house payment.
Leaves more money for guns and ammo and more time for hunting, fishing and trapping!

About the same for us. Too much room, then not enough.

As long as grandkids enjoy 4 wheeler rides around the property, fishing in the pond, probably worth the trouble. Will sell and downsize when they’re older and don’t care about such.

Not at all sure but its really too big. I think we ended up at 2200. Was 1600 and we took in the garage for a game run/gun room. Good use of it, its now a game room no one is in but Carolyn uses it for exercise. We never have folks over which is preferred by us so its ok. But NEVER go without a toilet for each human in the house.... if at all possible. Especially as you age...

What folks do with big houses is beyond me. Mom has one. She is only one left. Its just used to buy and store more crap. She needs a mini house at her age.
