Introduction: Our House
This is our house. I know, I know....it needs a bit of landscaping love. BUT, it is actually not too bad! Our house was built in 1992 (I really wanted a 1920s bungalow but, I guess that just wasn't in the cards). We got our house out of a bit of luck....it was a short sale and the owner told us exactly what the bank would accept as an offer on the lowest end.
The house is a three step ranch, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 1900 square feet, which we are told have the best resale value. I guess this has something to do with the growing demand for non-stair-climbing houses from the aging Baby Boomer generation. We really just liked the house. Aside from the horribly ugly carpet (which you will notice right away when I introduce a room a day to you) and the old roof, we haven't had any major issues with it. I think we made out well.
