What's the longest you've lived in one house?

We're thinking of moving in a year or so, and it suddenly occurred to me that it will be quite a shock to live in a different house after being in the same one for 17 years.

Previously I'd only lived somewhere for a maximum of 3 years, so didn't get quite so attached.

Got me thinking, and being nosy about other people, and what it's like to move after being in one particular home for so long.

We've been in our current one for almost 17 years too, which is the longest I've lived anywhere. I don't think we'll be moving again, we love our home and it would be too much of a wrench to move.

Aged 1-16 I lived in 11+ different houses. I hated it.
17-32 I lived In one, my little flat I had my two kids in that flat and would of stayed there forever but my eldest became disabled so we got a move to a house via the council.
Been here just over 1 year and hope never to move again.
My kids are 16 and 8 and adjusted well to the move. We moved to the next road so their lives are exactly the same, I think that’s helped.

5 years in this house . Longest so far and no intention of moving for at least 15 more.

This is my 21st home since leaving my parents house at 18. I'm done moving for a long time.

JeremyCorbynsBeard Sat 11-Aug-18 20:25:21

Wow some interesting posts there! I think it will probably do me good to move, before I get more too set in my ways grin

H1 - 2 years (aged 0 to 2),
H2 - 10 years
H3 - 11 years
H4 (first not with my parents and about to move out) z 10 years.
