No, we built a climate/environmentallly friendly cottage many years ago, we love it, and costs hardly anything for heating,cooling.
The bigger the house, the more work and upkeep, but sadly anywhere in Oz. now, a million $ would only get a rather small 'mansion'
If I won, I'd sell it and enjoy the $
I saw in a movie that the wife does not want to give up their house for a totally awesome mansion because they have memories in their house. It got me thinking what if this was a real life situation?
I am not sure what would I do. It depends on the mansion and so many other things. But I am taking it for sure, LOL !
It would depend on how rooted I am in my current place of residence. If I have a job I love, and moving to the million dollar mansion meant that I had to give up my job, I would think twice. I like VerityG's idea, and would probably go along that path myself.
