It's not too hard, but it's gotta have be approved and have a permit saying that the foundation is sound for a second story.
Then it's also on a hill, so that means you can only get to it from the front side (the rest is a steep hill to hell).
Also it's gotta be done in a way to be asthetically pleasing with the rest of the house (outside) cause it's HIGHLY visible and we're planning to move. Maca can do the electrical pretty easy (that's what he does) and as long as there's no plumbing, that's no big deal.

BUT-that side of the house is bedrooms upstairs, so there wouldn't be an entry directly to the house unless we changed that in the actual house-which we can't do right now, cause we're already short bedrooms.



ANYWAY-it's not particularly DIFFICULT, just time consuming detail bs.

Talking New Roomate

Redpepper's cat has taken to hanging out down in my suite. The other cat is completely uniterested and so she, as the submissive, seems to be enjoying her new domain. She's been sleeping with me the last few nights and watches me get ready for work in the morning. It's very calming I must admit. Yet another benfit of living together

I'm pretty happy in general but staying alert LOL!
I shouldn't re-read my posts. Turns out...I was. Not the end of the world...just something that is at the forefront right now.

or maybe it isn't a false sense of calm but rather there being periods of calm and periods of change. The calm was real and there will be calm again. <hugs>

Yesterday Redpepper and I spent the afternoon working on the passageway between the main floor and my suite. She's a fantastic organizer and I was handing modifying shelving and arranging a shared storage space primarily containing my favourite toys....TOOLS!....well my second favourite toys

We work very well with each other and compliment each other's skills.

Now to find a cheap door with lots of windows...the renos continue.

Violet and I lived together within a couple months of dating seriously; she just spent more and more time at my place and more and more of her stuff accumulated there, and then her roommates had a blowout and I said "screw it, just move in", lol. That was almost exactly 25 months ago.

Lana moved in a few months later as a friend and roommate; we "rescued" her and moved her in when we dropped her off oe day and saw her terrible living situation. That was about 21 months ago. 7 months ago she joined our relationship "officially" and physically, though she makes it clear that she'd loved us emotioally for a long time before that.

Anne had her own place a couple of miles away for the brief time we dated her.

I bought a house 11 months ago, a few months before Lana became an official girlfriend and before we met Adrian. 4 bedrooms, 2400 sq ft, plenty of room. There was never any question of Lana moving with us or not despite being "just a roommate"; we took her into consideration while house hunting, lol.

Adrian moved in about the same time Lana joined the relationship. It was too much too fast and we're still dealing with the fallout, but it's slowly resolving. I think. Or hope. Or something like that.

Right now Violet and I share the expansive master suite, and the other two have their own rooms across the upper floor, and there's a guest room; it's been this way for more than 7 months now. As finances permit we may be looking into getting Lana and Adrian their own place(s); they alternately adore the idea and chaff at it. It's all up in the air right now, we'll see what happens I guess...
