Let the House Hunt Begin

A view like this wouldn't be bad ...

A view like this wouldn’t be bad …

Since we sort of unexpectedly sold our house on April 2 and moved out by May 9, we didn’t have a lot of time to find a new house before we needed to be out of the old one. So, we moved in with the in-laws and are keeping our eyes peeled for a new place.

Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • A property in the country, in the northern half of the county, with room for some farm animals and four-wheelers and such. Ben doesn’t want any neighbors. At all.
  • At least three bedrooms.
  • Under $150,000

And here’s what we’d love in addition to those three items:

  • Two bathrooms.
  • Attached garage.
  • Main-floor laundry.
  • Full-size dishwasher.
  • Non-leaky basement.
  • Open floor plan.
  • Single story.

Yes, I know you probably know at least five other people looking for the exact same thing. And yes, I know it’s a lot to ask within our budget. But I also know that God has a plan for us, and when we find the right place, we’ll know it.

We’re keeping an open mind and being patient in this search. We have the luxury of being able to stay with the in-laws for a while, and so far, they haven’t threatened to kick us out. (Yay!)
