Well, over the past weekend I committed to something major. I am buying a small house sitting on 6 acres of land. It's owned by my dad and he has had big offers on it but he knew I was very interested if he ever got rid of it. He offered it all to me for $20,000 on Contract For Deed. I couldn't pass it up. The only real downside is I will have to commute 45 miles to work but with a decent car the math comes out to being much cheaper than living in the middle of Watertown. Plus, I will have space to work on my vehicles and my own 100 yard rifle range that we set up long ago. I am excited... a little scared... but happy.

Good Luck.  When I retire (not to many years from now) I'll be looking for a small house in the country

as life changing as this might seem today within a few months it will be as routine as paying rent or anything else you have ever done and you will be building a future with roots that obviously have a solid base already , 

i know nothing or things there but i think you got a deal on this new beginning , savor this new step you have taken , build your dreams , that drive is not that bad - ive done much more on a couple occasions in my life journey and those that travel for work would envy you that commute , 

i am very happy for you ,

You won't regret it Bear. I bought a place in the country 11 years ago, because city is too expensive to buy. It's renovation is still not finished; but it is mine! next year it'll be fully paid for and we'll have a party!
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

I had been trying to look for a place closer to Watertown but it was way too expensive to afford anything. Which is why I have been stuck in an apartment for 17 years. Looking forward to having a yard to do stuff in, being able to get a pet finally.... and the freedom of peeing on a tree if I so desire LOL

Just think of it as rent you pay to yourself instead of a landlord.
Do remember to keep a maintenance budget though. Start right away even if its small like $10.oo a week. You're the janitor, plumber & so on now.
