HEllo evryone!! I need to hear some communal living experiences. My boyfriend and I are planning a move to VT. I have two children, 7 and 5, who are not his. There, we plan to build an addition onto an already existing, mostly, house- the inside walls still have to be put up...insulation is hanging out... not very safe considering we heat it with 2 wood stoves. Anyways, my only problem is, I guess I should really say, problems...are...there's no well, we do have a nearby spring though. . There's no septic yet, but we could use a composting toilet, or something of the sort...and the biggest, the house is lived in by an older couple, who are very close freinds of his...and mine to be??...but that's just it, I have a hard time being cool with the idea of living with another very "strong" women. Is that being a control freak? I just want to be the woman of our house.
SEe, my boyfriend is really in a rush to get there. He carries the philosophy, he wants to live it while he works it...and by building the addition we'de only have one house to heat, one septic, etc....I completely understand, but I'm just not sure what I'm willing to compromise on...any helpful words....I'm confused
