For all of you that don't know; we moved into the house that we are in fast because the people that we were renting from were not paying the mortgage. So when we first moved in our house smelled like pee. I was pregnant at the time and I was too sick to go and look at the house so I just signed the papers thinking in my head that I didn't want to be homeless. I hate the house that we are in. I hate the floor plan, hate the smell, hate the neighborhood (our ward is great though).
So everyone that has moved around a lot know that when you do this you buy pieces of furniture that fits in the home that you needed it for. So when we buy our dream home I have convinced Spencer to let me sell or get rid of everything that we have and start off new. All of the boxes and books that are in the garage that we never touch I am going to get rid of them. I figure that we will not be able to do this until the kids stop experimenting with our appliances (like putting Cotton balls in the dishwasher). Until then I need to tough it out.
What I want: I would like a one story, three bedroom, three full bathroom house. One of the bathrooms connected to a mudroom and the mudroom is connected to the laundry room. I want a office/den in the front of the house. I only want one living aria. I see so may places with two or three. I want a small house that is set up well. I want thick walls and big double pained windows. I want the food storage aria right off of the kitchen. I want a small kitchen so not everyone gathers in the messy aria and they are forced to go and socialise in another room.
That is what I want. A house that is less than 2000 square feet that is set up well and it being out in BFE is a bonus too. I am not sure if they build houses that size anymore. Maybe I will take a drafting class when the kids are all in school and make some blue prints for my dream home. (See, I have a five year plan).
