Yeah – I know what you’re thinking.
You’re trying to figure out what I’m saying. You’re thinking about beer getting flat, the piano is out of tune, you have a flat tire and so on.
But that is not what I am talking about today. I’m talking about living flat.
Let’s face it. If you’re reading this you are probably like me and Bunny, you’re getting older. And the legs and knees are not in as good condition as when you were 20 or 30. And here’s the bottom line:
Stairs are not your friend!
What I mean by saying let’s get flat is to live in a situation where we don’t need to climb stairs.
If you live in a 2 story colonial, your bedroom is usually on the second floor. This means that, at a minimum, you’re going up the stairs once per day. For me it’s a lot more than once. Luckily my legs and knees are still able to handle it, but I don’t know how much longer they will last.
If you already live in a home with only one level, you’re probably in a good place. But if you have that 2 story colonial, how will you avoid the stairs?
Here’s the easy answer
Sell that big home a buy a ranch. And I know someone who can help you.
ME! I’m a Realtor, call me. Or visit my web site www.55plusinocean.com
But if you are not ready to sell, what can you do. Well, here are the three options I can think of:
- Remodel your home to move the master bedroom to the first level
You can Install a motorized stair lift
or You Can install a personal home elevator
These are expensive options but if they help you achieve the goal to get flat, it may be worthwhile
Get Flat – your legs will thank you for it
