Wife was already too smart. She came equipped with a Stihl 026 chainsaw, an 8 HP chipper shredder, Sears roto-tiller and had experience helping her father pour a 1500Sq Ft. concrete foundation for a house that never got built. Seems one of the sides was not absolutely square and her dad being a perfectionist, just stopped working on it some 30 years before we got married. She got experienced driving a 5 ton dump and working a Case backhoe long before I showed up. Not long ago we picked up a D4d cat at 21K #. She jumped on it and started tearing things up. I just brought the smarts to the game of knowing how to fix it all. The foundation is no longer worth building on and needs to get redone. The county is a PITA for permits and someday, someone will buy this 20 acres and build a McMansion on it. Sell this now for $3M? And go where to get the same of no human neighbors on 4 sides? Not overly loaded in cash, more is always nice but so is knowing when you have enough.
Currently living in a double wide band-aid can of a 1999 vintage and the wife is happy with this. I, on the other hand, am looking for a step up from this "open floor" plan. Don't like it. I remember watching a movie once and the old woman said houses were meant to be on the ground to grow roots. Trailers don't have roots. The snow blade is still available but the studs should come off her van though. . .
