Last week I told you about an opportunity to move into a new house. We went to look at it yesterday. I was almost hoping the inside would be horrible and I wouldn't want to move. Here's what I thought...
The living room is awesome...it has fireplace with a wood burner insert, all hardwood floors and is just huge. It is definitely a dream living room.
The kitchen is just a kitchen. It's not very big and does not have a dishwasher. It's hard to compare our current kitchen and that one because our kitchen is a dream kitchen.
There is a dining room which we currently don't have.
A full basement..partially finished. We could put a play room there and a study. Also would give the kids a place to run in the Winter.
Washing machine is in the basement...currently our home has a laundry room.
There is a two car attached garage...currently we have a shed.
A cement driveway...currently we share a driveway with our neighbors.
The new house has 3 wonderful acres that we can use however we want. I have to admit this is what I really like. My dream of having chickens and a huge garden would come true.
The downside is that my husband would have to drive to work and we're worried that if his current job slows down he might get laid off since we currently rent from his boss.
I look at it and see the space for the kids and dog to run around. Our current home is smaller and we've outgrown it. I see possibilities. Dreams coming true. My husband sees three acres that he would need to do something with and the possibility of losing his job. I see space...glorious space.
Again I ask what would you do?
