My family has outgrown our current home. We have 5 people in 1,100 square feet and 3 bedrooms. No basement and very limited storage. My garage looks like some hoarders house threw up in there and even I wanted to sort through it, I am not sure where I would start. Oh and let’s not forget that I have my mom’s house and my grandmother’s house in two storage units on the other side of town. And yeah, those need to be sorted as well.
And we want to adopt. We so badly want to add another member to our family.
We just can’t do all that in our little condo.
House hunting has been on our minds since this fall. We have have pretty limited parameters because we want to stay in our same neighborhood but move into the housing side. We need a 4 bedroom and I would really like a finished basement so I am not dealing with construction and children.
Last week a house came on the market that seemed great but was on a really busy corner. I posted a comment to my Facebook page about the location and it was interesting how differently the perfect house seems to each of us. Some people are perfectly happy living minimally in a tiny home and others had larger homes. One reader even shared a picture of her renovated farm house. I am sure that it absolutely lovely inside.
On Friday we finally had our showing. I was certain that I was just going to love it but in the end, I realized that this was not the perfect house for us. There was just something about the house that didn’t make my heart fall in love.
So now we are back to square one. I am ready to move forward with our family plans and I hope The Perfect House comes along soon.
