It’s almost time to move to Anjeong. The apartment we have leased in the city of Gwangju will be up in a few months, so we are spending the new year’s holiday with family making plans.
Himang is the nickname that we have given to the little piece of land that is our ideal location for a tiny house. We hope to move in by the end of March, so there is much to do in the coming months.
Finding an affordable container is not difficult. However, we will need to have it delivered, purchase materials (blocks, windows, insulation, wiring, plumbing, etc) and have it shaped to make it comfortable enough for two.
It is a few minutes walk up a small road that leads to one of the three or four farm plots that Abeoji owns (It’s not steep by Korean standards).
Up another few hundred meters to the south is another larger garden that Eomani plants with a variety of vegetables.
Our Himang is surrounded by the cemeteries of Anjeong. It has been a dream of mine for many years to live next to live next to one, so I feel this a great opportunity. Although I don’t know any of the identities of those buried and/or memorialized here, I want to honor them along with the land that we are planning to live on.
