Migrating my butt downtown

My dear friend Isabel just vacated her duplex in the middle of Alamo Heights, and with Kelly getting ready to sell the house, I figured it was a good idea for me to move. It was either that or clean out the shed in the backyard and start living there. I wonder if it would be selling point if the prospective buyers knew that the house came with a Guy in the backyard shed?

Would you pay extra for that? I don’t know if I would.

The new place is very nice – two stories, it’s ALL MINE, and there’s enough room that I can put all my stuff in it and still have it be a little on the austere side, which is exactly what I want at this point in my life. I’m so done with clutter.

Oh, and I bought more yarn. :-)

    of course you bought more yarn! can a spinning wheel and fleeces be far behind?

  2. Carol Says:

    would the guy in the shed do yardwork?

  3. Stephieface Says:

    Would the guy in the shed also come with his yarn stash? Would he being wearing kilts?

    I think I’d be fine if both answers were yes…. (oh and yes to the yardwork one too)

    Yay, maybe you can host the next Show n Tell 😉

  5. Anton Says:

    Oh, and if the guy in the shed shared his yarn, and did the yard work, yes, that’s a selling point.

    Congrats on the new pad.

    As far as the guy in the shed…Would said guy be weirded out if the man in the big house had a habit of parading around naked with the cutains open? What if he liked dancing to “Music From the Edge of Heaven” by Wham, in the buff, natch?

  7. Ellen-Mary Says:

    Well, that all depends on what the guy in the shed is going to do.

    Congratulations on the move.

    It’s healthy that you don’t see yarn as clutter. It’s one of the marks of a real knitter.

  8. Cheryl Says:

    Actually, I think I’d like to buy a house that came with a guy in a shed. That could come in very handy.

    Maybe I should let my realtor know that that’s one of the things I’m looking for.

  9. Suzy Says:

    I agree with Stephieface! A big yes if he wears a kilt, especially doing yardwork! More room to stash, what could be better?!

    The thing is, the guy in the shed is the new trend in luxury home amenities, so of course one pays extra but what home is complete without one? Stainless steel appliances, wine cellar, spa tub, crown molding, and bonus guy in the backyard shed. I saw it on HGTV.

    De-lurking to comment – does it count as decluttering if you move to a bigger place but still have the same amount of stuff? ‘Cause if it does – I’m so moving!


  12. Hilary Says:

    Good luck with the move! I’d LOVE a guy in a shed in MY yard! 😉

    I am having just the hardest time learning that yarn is clutter. I keep talking about tidying up and then buying more.

  14. mom Says:

    For Rachel, he’s got a spinning wheel…

    you want some fleece for the new place?

    A) Congratulations on the new residence! 2 stories – all yours. Me=jealous. (my place is all mine, but it’s a trailer, rented)

    B) I imagine it would depend on the guy in the shed. Would he do yardwork? If he was creepy, old, fat, and naked I def. see it as a thumbs down. But if he was attractive, did my yardwork, and wore kilts – def. a thumbs up!

    Perhaps I’m dense but we haven’t seen a kilt picture in quite awhile right? *begs*

  17. Lilith Says:

    For Anna Bannana: kilt pic.

  18. Suzy Says:

    Thank you Lilith for helping those of us with a “certain someone in a kilt” fetish!

  19. Jess, of the Bugs Says:

    If the guy in the shed is a sexy kilted man that does yard work, I call that a bonus and would pay extra. I’d even argue that it would be better than a half naked pool boy named Sergio – which is only a seasonal feature. There’s yard work that can be done year round!

    Ooo, a guy in the shed. Neat idea. Hope you love the new place! Two stories should provide much room for yarn…
