After our house went under contract we viewed a group of houses that were all pretty different but offered their own individual advantages.
Sustainable living on 25 acres of mostly swamp, loads of upkeep-
Lotta new house, no yard-
A classic brick home in an established neighborhood, needed renovation-
Newer cottage construction on an acre lot, lots of upgrades at a great price-
1920s shingled cottage in a great neighborhood-
Dan and I went back and forth and tossed around a lot of different options concerning our living situation—everything from living with my parents, squeezing in to a two bedroom townhouse, saving to build our own dreamy farmhouse. But with the instability of our economy and interest rates that went up a .25 in a week we felt like we needed to make a more permanent move and try to finally put down some roots and stay in a house long enough for our children to remember it.
Care to guess which one we are pursuing?
