There was entirely no debate about what both of us were doing in retirement.
At least that was the case for care about 15 years once both of us started to entirely consider being done with working a job.
We were going to sell the lake house as well as transfer to all the air conditioner down south. That was the plan. We wanted to be free of winter, the fas furnace as well as all that snow as well as ice. Winter was no going to be for playing hockey as well as tennis together as well as a bunch of sunshine. But how abruptly things changed. During our last year inside the zone controlled Heating as well as A/C of our office, our oldest child had her first baby. She as well as her wife live here as well as that just changed the calculus for our retirement plans overnight. One thing from our idea did remain unchanged. We replaced the family room, the roof as well as the Heating as well as A/C unit on our family apartment as well as sold it for a bundle. Great timing on that for sure. But both of us didn’t sink those proceeds into a apartment down south with state of the air residential Heating as well as A/C. Instead, both of us chose to build a small apartment for just the two of us right here as well as be Grandparents as much as both of us could. The small apartment that both of us had custom built came with an interesting option when it came to Heating as well as A/C. We went with a geothermal heat pump as well as it’s just even better than I thought it could be. Not only is it sustainable as well as will last well over 30 years, the geo heat pump provides the best heating ever with radiant floor heating. So our grandbaby can play on the floor in just her 1sie all Winter long.
