We looked at 6 yesterday, all have pro's and con's. One was too close to a very busy road, so we ruled that out. One was very ugly. One had no yard, (where are we going to put our crazy kids when we need some peace and quiet?) but it was oh, so charming. And one was perfect, except for the tiny, galley kitchen.
We looked at one very, very charming home today. I am in love with this one, but it only has two bathrooms.
I like this one for practical reasons. It has four bedrooms and four bathrooms, but very ugly wood paneling in the basement. And it doesn't have a wood stove.
And this one, we love the master bedroom. But it has a small dining room...and, well....we have a small dining room now and we need a bigger one.
Here are the non-negotiable things:
Less than an hour from work
Place for garden
There will be more hunting tomorrow.
