How about this house, on the lot shown bellow? I've been trying to find a great home for us. I want it to be cosy, affordable and totally functional. We want a house that is in sync with our lives and for me, one that allows us to have family members or friends over. I want to be able to accommodate my scrapbook friends whether they are new local friends or the friends I've made over the years that are willing to come and visit a beautiful area of the USA. Choosing a home is an agonizing process. Having one built is even scarier. I can only hope that I make the right decision and that both Rick and I love living here and feel cozy and comfortable.
This is not the usual look for the front of this home. I came across this front visiting the model in Monroe, OH. I think this is absolutely gorgeous. But I had to consider the reality of having the most expensive home in the subdivision and then it occurred to me this morning that if the house is on a lot that rivals anything in any subdivision I've seen, IE a million dollar view, it would continue to be attractive. So here is the lot that I would love to put the house on.
I would love to read your comments, both positive and negative and any suggestions you might have on this choice. I'm also including the link to the plan for the house. Our home would include a full bath with a shower on the main floor. On the second floor we'd have a shower in the hall bath and a door from bedroom two, creating a second master. Bedroom 3 would be the guest room and bedroom 4 the exercise room/Rick's office. As for the basement we would finish the rec room a little bigger, add another window as well as have the slider put in. Like many homes in this area, the basement is a walk out. I'd make sure that my scrapbook friends could roll their carts right into the rec/craft room and would include another full bath and a space for a fridge, microwave and sink.
So what do you think? On the right track or completely out in left field?
