THIS HOUSE IS TOO BIG!

So you like your neighbors, the location is convenient and you do not want to move. You find your home is just too big for you to take care of. Moving is a hard decision and you may not wish to move at this time. One solution is to close off the second floor of a two story home, then make a den or dining room on the first floor your bedroom. This works out fine if there is a bath or 3/4 bath on the first floor. By converting your large two story or story and a half into a ranch life style, you may be able to use your present home for many years to come.

If there is not bath, you may want to explore the option of putting on an addition that will act as both a bathroom and a first floor laundry. Sometimes large closets, pantry or a small room addition can accommodate this option.

If there is no bathroom and no laundry and you can not expand, then you must choose to continue using the stairs and use at least some of the upstairs. If you can not use the upstairs because of health, but you want to stay independent, you may have to sell the large home and think about moving into a two or three bedroom ranch. Often the smallest bedroom can be converted into a laundry and sewing room.
