If you must get another house... I would not get a bigger one unless your house is 1500 square feet or less. I would look for a more energy efficient house or one with more storage or build a green house (if I could afford one)

Also since your house is paid for almost... maybe you could buy a lot and go through one of those places that helps you act as your own contractor. Supposedly 2/3 of a house cost is labor. They help you figure out how to subcontract out the major house stuff plumbing, electrical, foundation etc.

Anyway if I am ever get another house that is what I plan to do.
