It's looking like this is the one - the place to call our own!
Personally, I'm not wild about the big garage door up front, but life is about compromise isn't it? I think this house is a fine compromise. (I'm a renovated farmhouse kind of gal at heart, complete with horse barn...)
I appreciated the comments people made on this earlier post about walking into a house and feeling the "ahh, this is the one" factor. I felt it here. Steve needed a little convincing, but not much. Unfortunately the house faces south, but most of the living space is on the north side. We're going to install a couple of extra windows in back to brighten it up just a bit. That and a lighter color paint than what's in there now and it will be perfect! (Except for the fact that it's not a farmhouse with a horse barn out back.)
Visual description: gray vinyl sided 2-story house, with some brick detailing. White, rather prominent 2-car garage door on right. Don't know what kind of build an architect would call it. Anyone know? It's all of 5-years old...
