I moved to a rural away after my divorce. Never meant for it to be permanent; it was more like a retreat. But I feel in love, with a person and with the incredible landscape.
Two years later my house sits on the side of the Appalachian Trail and when I’m missing NYC, I just take a walk on my property and reacquaint myself with what I traded it in for. Peace. Trees. Space for a few horses one day.
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss the architecture, the art or culture. I get jealous sometimes. I scope out co-working spaces like In Good Company and Watercooler. It’s tempting, but part of the dream fulfilled by having my own business is being home with my children and homeschooling them. Can’t do that if I’m commuting to a co-work space, no matter how chic and inspirational.
So I got the nifty idea in my head to build one of those Tiny Houses, but make it a Tiny Office. I’d like it to face my pond (if not be actually in it) and for at least one wall to be floor to ceiling glass for maximum blending with the environment. I wonder what putting it in a tree would do to our liability insurance policy and would clients be to scare to come up?… I’m curious, what do you think?
