Yep, there is a House #3 but this one really should have been House #1 because it’s the first one I saw that I liked. Some of you may remember that back in early March, I had the wrong link for the drop stitch scarf and it went to this house. Our move wasn’t a done deal at that point but we were looking at houses. I sent the link to this house to Vince and then accidentally inserted it into my blog post. Embarrassing!
Vince wasn’t so thrilled with the house because he needs to be within 15 minutes of his work and if you get the directions to this house on the computer, it gives you the wrong directions and puts this house a good bit farther away than it really is. Vince is going to see the house next time he’s in TX.
This house has 15 acres but another 60 acres are available. It has fruit and nut trees. It has a gas stove. The house is a bit small for us but it has no garage so we’re thinking we can add a garage with a sewing room upstairs, with a bath, kitchenette type room and maybe even add a little guest house type room on the ground floor part of the garage. This could be my first choice if it all looks as good in real life as it does in the pictures. We love the trees. I love the metal roof. It has a gas stove. It has new air conditioners and a new water heater. I’m not real crazy about the tile in the kitchen but I can live with it. As far as the square feet, this would be the smallest house we’ve had in years but with an additional sewing room that’s about 20 x 30, this house would be perfect!
While in Louisiana, I visited two quilters who had their sewing rooms outside their home in a separate building (but attached to the house by a walkway). I came away thinking I’d actually enjoy having my sewing room not inside the house. So, if it happens that it’s outside, I’ll be fine and if it ends up being part of the inside of the house, I’ll be fine with that too. Just give me a gas stove and nothing else matters! Remind me that I said that! 🙂
