How much exciting it is to have a whole room for yourself or for that matter whole house?In India, one of the biggest things to be earned is considered as having a house in one's own name.
We all get something as an inheritance some expand that house makes it bigger, some start with a scratch and makes a completely new house. But having your own house is given a lot of value, unlike western country where no one has a problem living in a rented apartment for life.
Although I can't relate to the experience of having a house on the name as I am nowhere near that, even I was very excited when I got a separate room in my childhood, I was so excited about having something which I will decorate in my own terms.
Today I was listening to a conversation of a few people about making and owning a house. And have also seen many elderly people in the house who take care of the house very much and keep nagging the people who rent any of the sections in the house for keeping it clean and well condition, because they are so much attached to their house.
Also, I have heard so many stories from my grandfather about making the house in the village by his parents and how much difficult that have been at that time, then its further expansion by him and later by my father at a completely different location.
So I thought to raise this thread here, as many members here are well established and I guess definitely have added that feat in their lives. If you would like to share the experience of having a house of your own, made with your hard-earned money.
How did it make you feel? and do you still cherish it something of that much value?
