Much of my life has been aboard a ship or boat. Owning a house is like a prison sentence. It doesn't move. You're tied to it in your spare time and doing maintenance when you could be in a better place having fun. You have to buy furniture you don't want that has almost no value when you sell it. Often, you're saddled with some neighbor that is obsessive with some aspect of maintenance you could care less about.

I miss nothing about house living. I did have a dairy and miss the cows, but not the neighbors.
