House Hunting

A few weeks ago, my fiance, Adam, and I started HouSE HuNTinG!! We have seen some pretty...unique... houses, but we have also found some pretty nice ones. There was a house where the basement floor was raised, toilets in the middle of basement, green carpet, and wallpaper galore! It's been interesting seeing how other people live...tiny backyards, no dishwashers, etc. But overall, we have really been enjoying searching for the perfect home to start our family.

Now, I would like to think we are pretty easy going when it comes to what we are looking for. We don't really care what the house looks like; we can tear out carpet, rip down wallpaper, paint the walls, redo the cabinets, etc. But the layout of the house is where we become picky. Here is a list of our must-haves for our home:

We need a house that will be big enough to start a family. We don't want to HAVE to move when we have a few kids. So multiple bathrooms, a large basement, and a nice-sized yard for the kiddos to play in. Shouldn't be too hard to find, right?

Well, we have gone through 20+ homes now, and we think we've found some winners. Maybe I'll have a house to decorate by the time I'm married :)

What are some crazy things you have seen while searching for your home?
