I Need a New Pad
The thing is, it's not all too easy to find people with places for rent out in the countryside. A lot of them I don't even think list in the paper/online. I quite often see "for rent" signs posted beside the driveway, then for a year or two, no sign... then a sign again. So, I've been driving around looking for signs - and of course when you need to find one, you never can! We did find a place for rent in Chilliwack - a nice little two bedroom house with a huge back yard and a decent work-shop/shed. It'd cost us around $500 more than what we pay right now. But, so far, that's the only place we found. If I was lucky, I'd find a place that badly needed paint and offer to paint the place for the owner for really cheap or in exchange for rent - that way I could get my head back into painting. I've painted a few houses and I know I can do a good job, but it's been a while and being able to do one job like that would be all I'd need to get me going and rebuild my confidence in my painting abilities.
We've kinda made a goal for ourselves to have a new place - or a place for me to work - by the end of the summer. So we've got a couple of months to find something, and in the meantime I can do some more research on the types of small businesses I want to try to get into, while putting my car up for sale (I need a truck!) and getting other little odds and ends taken care of.
