This is wicked exciting but also terribly frustrating. Homes here go so fast, by the time they list they are already under contract so we are getting a big dose of reality here. This is a first for Eric and I and I have found it VERY interesting to see how much our preferences vary.
- Open layout between family/kitchen spaces
- New construction
- Garage in front/ no alley
- White cabinets
- Hard flooring in ALL dining and living areas
- Lots of closet space
- Large and mature yard
- Open layout
- Space to grill on patio
- Decent sized garage
- Established/ defined neighborhood
- Natural woods
That said this is our first contender. It is far out in the suburbs making the wish list maybe possible v. where we live now where it just could not happen financially. Plus this house sits about 10 minutes from my parents and about 30 from his, as well as in a preferred school district.
