My aim was a home with land. I didn't want to look out my window and wave to my neighbor as they were getting out of the shower. I also wanted a deck/patio, but I was more concerned about the land.
We looked at many houses that were lovely. We had high hopes for an A-frame house because it just looked so darn cool! Sadly, it was in poor condition, 25 feet from a river, and we couldn't enter the front door due to a huge bees nest!
We looked at a place in a development that the sellers had not only their property, but the land next to it. I was intimidated by this one because they had an amazing flower garden going. I have a black thumb. It would such a waste for me.
There was one house we really wanted to look at because it had a single lane bowling alley! Sadly, it was under contract by the time we went out to look at houses. This was very sad.
We finally decided on a house in a semi-rural area. It was the least expensive house we looked at, had 1.76 acres of land, 2,100 square feet, and an amazing fire place.
And now, after 10 years, we are getting ready to put that deck on! This makes me happy. I can't wait to have it completed and sit down to relax with friends.
|Oh goodness. we look so young!|
Where do you live? Are you a home owner or have to chosen the rent path?
