Hey Y'all!! We continued our house hunt today and found one that we could possibly call home. I took my camera and everything, but didn't take it in. I thought I could remember it, of course I got home and thought, duh! I can't share it!!
I have a few questions for y'all. I know that ultimately we have to make the decision, but I always value a good opinion!!
The home was built in 1973, which I don't mind, because in some ways I like older homes. I like them really old, but can't seem to find one, not that my husband will agree on anyway. This home is quiet charming on the inside. It is kind of L-shaped in its layout. The living room has a floor to ceiling rock fireplace with a raised hearth. The kitchen has lots of cabinets but no pantry. The cabinets are quiet cute, but someone put little round locks on a lot of the doors. Kinda weird...The formal dining is off the kitchen and seems like its own room, tucked back-this home is not what you would consider an open floor plan. There isn't a lot of room in the kitchen for a big table. I'm thinking a bench and narrow rectangular table. The master bathroom just has a shower and single sink vanity. The bedrooms are pretty big and one is big enough for the boys to share and we would use the fourth bedroom for a schoolroom. The kid's bath is big-bigger than the master bath and has a long vanity. The bathrooms have the original tile floor. Not square, not hexagonal, not sure how to describe the shape, but they don't bother me.
Okay, so would you let the fact that the house is on a road, a well-traveled road, bother you? The back yard is fenced and they would play mostly back there. The front yard is biggish. Would not having a big eating area in your kitchen bother you? How about a somewhat closed in kitchen. I am thinking that we could maybe cut out a space above the sink to look over the living room. I think those are the only questions I have. Obviously I know that my husband and I have to make the decision, but it is nice to have a sounding board.
