We arrived in North Carolina on Monday, the girls came along on this trip.
Just give them a pool, and they are happy!
We looked at houses all day Tuesday and Wednesday. It was fun and overwhelming, so many things to think about. Just like house hunters it came down to 3 houses.
The super cute (love, love, love, the vertical siding!) 1.5 story home. This house is so cute inside, has a nice kitchen, screened in back porch and nice yard. Also, has a huge home school space upstairs. It's the most expensive of the 3 and the farthest away from work for Jim. But, by far, the girls and my favorite!
This one is a more traditional 2 story. It was moving day for this family, and they were very gracious to let us tromp through on such a busy day. This house is the smallest (even though it looks like the biggest! The 1.5 story homes are deceiving from the front) and didn't have a great homeschool space. It did however, have a huge yard that was totally fenced in. A great plus for Ben. This house is also in my favorite neighborhood.
And finally, number 3. It's the biggest and least expensive of the 3, it's actually a foreclosure, and could be a great bargain. It's very nice inside, fresh paint and new carpet. It has a great kitchen (size-wise), and a huge pantry, also a screened in porch in back and a nice patio. It's on a big lot (no fence) in a smaller country sub. Upstairs is a great homeschool space and a big rec room for the kids. Did I mention none of the houses here have basements?
So which one did we choose? Stay tuned and feel free to offer your opinion!
