There’s a house that I had found online and had asked Vince to look at. It’s farther from work than he wanted to be. You have to travel a bit down a dirt road. I mentioned it on the blog about a month and a half ago. Vince talked to the realtor we had then and for some reason, he never saw it. We’re about to run out of time and we’re finding nothing so I asked him to please go back to every house we’ve talked about and look at it as if we’re desperate . . because we are desperate!
Today he saw the house I’ve been begging him to see and he loves it! In fact, he said that he’ll look at houses the rest of the week and if nothing else turns up, he’ll probably make an offer on Monday. It has almost 150 acres, a 24′ x 24′ guest house (sewing room) with a bath/shower and a kitchen, as well as a 24′ x 24′ shop for Vince. It has a two car oversized garage that has plenty of room for storage. The house only has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms but with the sewing room being outside, we figured we could get a nice camper and use that for a “guest house”. Vince said the guy who had lived there was an engineer and he designed the house and it’s extremely well built. He said the kitchen isn’t huge but it’s adequate and he thinks I’d be happy with it. I’ve seen pictures and I loved it. It’s not all fancy like real new kitchens but it has plenty of work space, countertop and cabinets and two nice windows.
I’m really excited about this possibility. Living out in the middle of nowhere on 150 acres isn’t for everyone but I remember being a kid on my grandparents’ farm . . in the middle of nowhere on 80 acres, and that’s where I loved being. If we get this property, in 15 or so years, we may wish we were in town somewhere but for now, I cannot live in a neighborhood with rules — no clothesline, no chickens, no this , no that . . that lifestyle obviously works for some it’s not what we want right now.
I’ll keep you posted . . I’m so excited about the possibility and I don’t even mind if Vince makes an offer on this house without me getting to see it!
