our search for a new house may finally be at an end: we found one that we both really like and that’s big enough to suit our family’s needs probably until the kids all graduate high school in 14-odd years… the exterior needs a bit of a facelift (just some quick, easy, relatively cheap cosmetic changes), but the interior is finished to the hilt; there’s no such thing as a perfect house, but this one’s close enough… 🙂 I just hope we can get all of the paperwork together and get it under contract (lease-option) before someone else figures out just what a great buy this house is…!
