Yes,I do.I live in a school house for more than forty five years. It is very comfortable for us here. So why make any changes.We have lovely country furniture. Oil painting,oriental rugs.Wood stove and oil heat. White enamel stove and fridge.Oh!you should get stainless stove etc. Why?we do not have any problem with it.Two flat TV screen.Computer room. So,why should I make changes.So you have a king size bed and all the fancy gadget for you to play with.No my friend,changes are not to be made here. We are very comfortable and we enjoy the history of our house. Oh!we do have a mini library.We do not have any fancy lightening etc. Plus we are free and clear of bills.Changes I think no. You can have it and pay for the rest of your life. If some of you could see our house and I am sure that you will agree. Every two years most people change everything from furniture to etc.Yes,I do not like changes.I like what we have.I am proud of it Do you like changes?are you satisfied with your house.If not please explain. I am not talking about things that need to be replace.Is what you have. Wow!this has to be one of my longest post. the photo is mine.

Your home sounds lovely. We do not change like that.If you like what belongs to you, you can spend that money for something else.

Your house looks absolutely lovely. You need to keep those things around you that you have grown to love and care about.It is part of who you are and each and everything will have a memory attached to it.

I've always thought how cool it is you guys live in an old school house. The only converted school house I've seen is a restaurant called Olde Spaghetti Factory - about a 45 minute drive from here - and it's neat how they kept a lot of what "was" there. If you are happy, then no need to change . . . keep on with whatcha got!!

Why should you make changes if you like what you have? Don't listen to others.

I like my old home. It isn't anybody's idea of beautiful I suppose but it's mine. I lean toward simple, clean and uncluttered. I wish the old man leaned that way too

I am going to comment twice here. This is my current room and I love it. However,my child washed my comforter and it shrunk and now it's not useful for me. so this is how my room looks now and you will see what I am changing it too below. By the way I love home decor and change is awesome.

I don't want to go into debt for things that are not needed in my home, I am satisfied with the way things look and I am not going to buy any new things just because someone I know has that.

We moved from a big house to a smaller ranch home. I do love the smaller home since the work is so much less. I do make changes to the home, but not big ones. A big change I want to make is to have our basement made into a family room. It is so cool down there in the summer and I would have a fireplace put in for winter. Now, I would have to do a lot of saving for that remodel, but it would add greatly to the value of the home. I love the photo of your home!

I think it's pretty cool that you live in a school house. I wouldn't make any changes either.

i'm odd and most of what satisfies me,...well,...it pleases me. This is to say that if you like the way you live, why change? A lot of us would love to live that way. My furniture is unique and says a lot about me, so I try to keep it as long as I can, or until It's actually worn out.

If you like and are comfortable with what you have there is no point in changing and still there things that hold memories for us. I agree change is not always a good thing.

Your home seems like a nice place to be. If it suits you and your needs, I don't see why you should make changes. It doesn't matter what others think, so long as you like it the way it is, and there aren't any major problems with the house. Just enjoy it just as it is.
